Review summary

Had a good time overall. Don’t think I’d rush back. Food was a major disappointment. Was served raw chicken one night which could have been fatal. Probably the reason I spent a day in my cabin with vomiting and diarrhea. Food served was never really hot, almost lukewarm. I did not care for the”smart” elevators. Best thing was friendly and helpful staff and good excursions.
