Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
We mostly ate at the buffet because the dinning room selections didn't sound good. The buffet was too much of the same. No specialty stations, like crapes, omelets etc. The food as a whole was overcooked. If it was on the dinner menu one night the next day it was made into something else. Very disappointed in the variety, the presentation, and the quality.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Pickle ball was offered. Only one court so really never had a chance to play. Music too load at pool areas so never swam. No climbing wall.

Instead of having two shows a day , then something new, they would do the show 3 times. So not much variety. The entertainment and music did not fit the age of the crowd. Average probably 75. Again. Very appointed.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cleanliness was fine. There were just two of us in the room. Had asked for a queen bed. Had too wait for them to put the beds together. It was a room for 4 so every time you got out of bed you bumped your head on the pull out bed above you. Our friends that booked at the same time had a lovely inside state room. Our was not pleasant because of the beds above our heads.
