Food and Dining

Drinks were good. Food was less than appealing. Ate buffet and sit in dining for breakfast and dinner. Same menu for breakfast daily. Dinner menu was hit or miss

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
One small pool. Adult area not open for cruise. Best activity was bingo

Divas show was really good. Comedy shows not so much. DJ was great with music choice and taking request. DJ Deno was awesome

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
I didnt know my room stewards name or who was cleaning it. Felt uncomfortable. One bartender told me to leave the bar cause she didnt have time to attend to me since they wasnt open yet(10mins before they did open). Overall some staff seem "over it". Some was awesome.. Made the bartender. Igustu wait staff.

Choose late disembarkation. Ate breakfast in seating dining room but ask staff if we could hear intercom in the dining room. We were told 'yes'. We later learned that we could not and our number had been called 15mins prior to us actually hearing/knowing it was called
