I do mean EVERYWHERE. Most activities were planned for late night, like 11:00pm
Food and Dining
1 out of 5
Better food at a casino buffet. Every night our order was wrong and came out at different times. Our table must have been in the main thoroughfare since the waiters constantly ran into us. Breakfast was something else. Ham omelet with ham that tasted spoiled and it took three seperated trips to get my order

Shows were late starting, looked as if they practiced for about 15 minutes. Had two show times and would have Bingo right before the second show so all of the seats were taken an hour before. The various musical "entertainers" found throughout the ship couldn't carry a tune in a bucket with both hands. Every song sounded like every other song PROVIDED that you could understand the words and they could remember what they were
Service and Staff
3 out of 5
Most of the staff were friendly enough except for in the Duty Free store. They were very rude
The Gold Coast Tour is a waste. You get on a bus, drive 5 minutes to the Cultural Center for about 1/2 hour, then drive up the coast for ab out 1 hour to a restaurant that tries to rip you off by selling you food valued at 12 dollars for 16.50. Then you ride back to the ship.
Pros: Cabin was very nice
Cons: Food and seating in the main dining was terrible. Eaten better at buffet. Elevator service was horrid, they would go right on by you most of the time. Kids everywhere, and I do mean EVERYWHERE. Most activities were planned for late night, like 11:00pm
