Best crew we ever had. They were the cream of the crop, every one of them. They were all so nice, bent over backwards to help in every way. Kudos to all Fascination personnel.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
It is hard to rate this in one spot. All dining room and buffet dining personnel were superb--BEST EVER after over 30 cruises.
Food qualtiy was the worst, hot foods usually arrived cold. Waiters in dining room were obviously spread too thin and still bent over backwards to make amends. All meats were like shoe leather. All Dining Room Staff were superb!

The on board shows we saw were fantastic. Trolley tour "HOP ON, HOP OFF" was very misleading. We rode all they way around to survery where we wanted to get on and off from and were told we had to get off, tour was done. We were shocked and confused. Tour was great, we loved it, but HOP ON, HOP OFF obviously was not quite true.
Service and Staff

All ship personnel were above and beyond anything we had ever experienced in 30-plus previous cruises. They were superb in every way.

We booked a mini-suite (3d time). Remodeled baths were austere. They removed all the nice features. Blue plastic flooring was both ugly and cheap looking and feeling.
Cabin / Stateroom

We booked a mini-suite (3d time). Remodeled baths were austere. They removed all the nice features. Blue plastic flooring was both ugly and cheap looking and feeling. But it WAS non-slip which is a good thing! Balcony chairs were so big you could not get out on the balcony so we went out on the front deck instead. I will never pay for a mini-suite again. Too small of a room and balcony for that kind of money.
