We were somewhat disappointed in this cruise. We did have great accommodations and the crew members were friendly and helpful. The nighttime entertainment was great.However, there are just too many people on board. Our next door neighbors were crude, loud, obnoxious, vulgar , and smelly. The food in the main dining was "institutional " at best. We did not eat there the last three nights. People in the buffet lines were unreal. I saw one woman drop food on the counter, recover it with her fingers, lick it off, and pick up the next ladle. Kinda hard to eat after that. PA system only functioned in the hallways. Had to open the door to hear broadcasts. Shore excursions were marginal. Thank goodness they were of short duration. Activities are mainly for the younger set.

Best food is "brunch" while at sea. Other food you can get anywhere.
