If you find yourself and Hometown Buffet on Friday nights and like to wait in lines for practically everything, this is the perfect cruise for you. This was our fourth cruise on four different cruise lines and was the only one to truly disappoint. The management needs to take a cruise on Disney to see how to manage lines and crowds. Standing in lines is not a great way to spend your vacation. Management was indifferent when obvious suggestions were brought to their attention. This is the K-Mart of cruise lines and it doesnt take long to understand how they earned that reputation.

Go see the spring musical at your local high school and you will have about the same experience.

Housekeeping staff and wait staff in main dining room were great but that experience did not extend to anyone else including (but not limited to) the purser's desk.
