Review SummaryThis was our first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. Our stateroom was larger than expected and comfortable. Our room steward was fantastic. Our dining staff in the platnium club was very attentative and professional. We were a bit disappointed in the quality of the food not just the evening meal but in any of the restaurant. It wasn't restaurant quality meals, actually it didn't match the quality of food served al most of the hotels we've dined at. Many of the areas seemed under staffed, long lines and overworked employees sometimes seemed short. Again - this was our first cruise so we thought this was normal but while listening to others on the cruise with many crusies (some on the very same cruise) we heard similar remarks regarding short staff, long lines etc.
The ship definately has some miles on her - showing wear and looked a bit dated.
Overall it was a good experience, we were a little disappointed but we would certainly think about taking a cruise again.
