The entertainments on the ship are very good. We had such a Desert were okay, not great. I find better deserts at Safeways. Some of the foods were like from Costco. very disappointed. But in a way, i am okay with it because i didnot over eatten and i did not gain weight after the trip. On the Princess Cruises, they allow us to order whatever we want. They could cook for us. However, it's not the same on this ship. They don't do anything special for you. the buffet is closed early, around 10 pm and i think that's too early. Fruits were the same everyday. they should have different kind of fruits and salads. The cafeteria at Virginia TEch is much better than the foods on this ship. Very disappointed.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Not all of them are willing to help. After the hours, you can't find your state room. I called the manager, she said she would immediately send someone but that someone never came. We waited for a long time and then gave up.
