Food and Dining
As we experienced on our other cruise, the buffet food is OK. The dining room food was very good and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the Your Time Dining because it worked with the odd times that we returned from our excursions. We had great waitstaff every night but do miss getting to know our waiters better with the assigned seating. I was dissapointed that basic things like bacon, iced tea, etc were not really very good. Most important, my husband always looks forward to the escargot - he was extremely dissapointed when they were taken off the menu.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Decorated nicely and lots of room to store belongings. Bathroom was very nice and clean. The beds, linens and pillows are very comfortable. However, we did notice that our room warmed up every morning around 0500-0600 which was uncomfortable.
Service and Staff
We had two waitstaff that had difficulty understanding us but made sure that we were taken care of.
Would like to see a few more activities or spread them out better. IIt seemed like we were always having to choose one activity over another because the times overlapped or coincided. The bean bag challenge was very popular and crowded; maybe could have offered it more often or two different locations to split the crowd up.
