Food and Dining

1 out of 5
This was by far the worst! Every night we had to wait to be seated and some meals took up to two hours to be completed. Totally made planning for activities difficult because you never knew how long meals would take.

Comedy shows were the best. All other shows lacked enjoyable content. The dance \"lesson\" shows were a waste of time. Because dinners took a long time we were unable to make the evenings shows.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Every staff member seemed grumpy and not enthused to be there. I often found myself dreading to have to interact with staff.

Our steward was awesome at answering questions and keeping our cabin neat and clean. I was most impressed by this.

Pros: Cabin size

Cons: Food and entertainment space
