Ship experiences

Food and Dining

I’m only giving two starts because of the FLYS in MOST of the dinning areas especially in Horatio’s Restaurant. I’ve been on several cruises & never experienced anything like it. They also were in Nick & Nora’s Steak house ruined the dinning experience waving flys off the table & away from the food.

If there were no FLYS I’d give it a better rating the food was awesome but to defend your food from flys landing on it & the tables drink stations was absolutely gross

Horatio's Lido Restaurant

Again the good was awesome the flys was disgusting. Staff couldn’t do more yo rid of the Flys. This was not my first cruise so I don’t believe the flys come from the ports they were on board st sea!! Ewwwww!!

The main dinning room was aware of our large party of 28 .. once on board, we tipped the Marta d to keep us all sitting together. Sorry to say it sis not happen, 5 of us were seated away from the party of 28. Very disappointing the wait staff food was awesome.

Nick & Nora's Steakhouse

Food was awesome I give it 4 stars ... the FLYS!! Ruined the atmosphere. The chef, the staff the hostess waiters all accommodating . The fly situation is the ships issue not the staffs
