Food was terrible! Veg under cooked and meat was very tough.

Onboard Activities

Serenity Deck was great. 80s rock show was very good and so was the lip sync battle.

Ship Quality

Very old and lots of rust. Had sewage smell for 2 days. It was in the hallway and my cabin. The smell was so bad in the cabin one night it was nauseating 🤮
