Food and Dining

Terrible. I went to a specialty restaurant and the quality of the food was awful. Left feeling like I had been ripped off. Everyone at my table felt the same way. The Buffet was not good at all. The burgers were excellent but I didn't feel that I needed to only eat burgers on the ship but that was the only good food on the ship. My family and I, as well as many more guest felt the same way. Terrible Food!!!!
