Review summary

Having cruised a few times before with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity I was disappointed with the main dining room even though we had upgraded to Club Class Dining. I particularly disliked having a card placed in the menu each night with dishes available at a supplement. The main show entertainment was budget.

Buffet was good but main dining room food was just okay, nothing special, certainly not to the standard of Royal Caribbean or Celebrity.
