Review SummaryMaybe I expect more than most but I was hoping for a better experience. Granted, some significant frustrations during the disembarkation process are probably coloring this a little bit but I was really hoping for a better "all around" experience.
The food in the dining room was pretty good and what I would expect. The buffet food was more like what I would find at a Ryan's or a Golden Corral. The dining room staff was outstanding. The buffet staff was not bad but inconsistent and sometimes left me scrathing my head about common sense.

Pros: Lots of food. Stateroom and dining room staff.
