Unfortunately Bad Food

Sail Date: November 01, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The food was poor both in the dining room and on the Lido deck.  I've been on about 15 cruises and have only experienced bad food one other time.  Bring some snacks or prepare to have to pay to get decent food in the restaurants that charge extra money.  


Don't get late seating for dinner.  We did late seating and missed many of the shows that were scheduled for the same time with no repeats.  Do the anytime dining if you can.


The excursions were still great.  We did snorkeling and speed boating in Cozumel and kayaking and ziplining in Jamaica.  Both were excellent.

Cabin / Stateroom
Really large cabin with nice, private balcony.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
No reason to get to the port early for embarkation. They wait until there is a huge line because they've charged some people extra for them to get on the boat first.

Food and Dining


Opt for the anytime dining so you can make it to the shows you want to see.
