Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
All the food has no taste. Found absolutely nothing in the buffet that was edible. Even the rolls were so rock hard it was impossible to eat. Every cake or dessert all tasted the exact same. Food I. Dining room was a tad bit better but nothing I would look forward to again. The only food I liked and could eat and enjoy was Guys Burger Joint

BlueIguana Tequila Bar

Onboard Activities

Lots of activities and lots of fun. Comedy club was cold but enjoyed it. The shoes were okay and parties on deck were great.

Stupid way of selling photos. Why waste all that money on printing all those pics. Takes forever to find your pics. Wish they had it on computer with your sign and sale card and you could buy digital photos. Who wants tons of 8x10. I would of bought more if I could of got smaller size or printed myself.

Every staff member was happy and very nice.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Layout was okay. We were aft and it was difficult to get to front of ship with a lot of the floors not going all the way through. Elevators were horrible. Staff had 3 of the 4 closed the whole first day tonuse to move luggage. I had fttf but still had to go find my luggage sitting out in a hall waiting to be deliver around 5 pm.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Size was good, beds were comfortable. There was dried drips of blood on desk in room. That was gross and I cleaned it up. But it was a aft room and it smelled like sewer the whole cruise.
