I read all the reviews prior to boarding so I was a little nervous.... I guess it's perspective and WHAT you want out of a cruise. The crew was GREAT! The entertainment was NEVER lacking, the food was good, yes, mass produced, so don't expect gourmet but really? It's like going to McDonalds and ordering a freshly made Filet Mignon and getting upset you got a bigmac.... really? Some people just have to have something to complain about! It was fourth of July weekend so CROWDED but again, perspective, I had a blast, my family had a blast and although I feel like the crew are overworked and very under appreciated by passengers they were all pleasant and always acted like they were there to personally ensure my vacation was fabulous!!!
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
EDY and SHELON , the crew in the piano bar were the most special, genuine people I have ever met. They called me by name, they smiled and made me feel like I was the only person onboard. I actually was SAD to say goodbye to them!!!!! JIMMED in the Metro bar and dining room was a GEM...he has such a kind spirit and wonderful smile . He always went out of his way to speak to me and smile at me. THEY are all working so hard and at times I felt bad that they were working so hard but they never showed it, never negative, always smiling and I will always remember how they made me feel special. SHELON even ran after me with a bottle of water when she noticed that the piano bar had closed and I had left but had only mentioned I was going to get water!
Cabin / Stateroom
The cabins are small, two of us was fine, four of us was tight. Don't take BIG suitcases that cannot be folded down due to lack of space but if you are staying in your room you are missing something!!!! TIP your crew members who were extra special!!!! They deserve it!
