Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Buffet food was awful. It was lacking variety. The food taste was awful: too salty, too spicy or no taste at all! Breakfast was always the same thing: ham, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage and hashbrowns. That's it!

Onboard Activities

Its an old ship. The pool is small. Kids splash area is ok!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Agusti, my room steward, was one of the best steward I have ever had on my 15+ years of cruising experience. Also received good service at Dinning table. Food wasn't that great although food there was not that great.

Very cozy room. Agusti kept it clean and beds are beyond comfortable. I felt like I was sleeping over marshmallow!
