Poor food, entertainment second rate

Sail Date: April 13, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

I found the food equal to continental breakfast served in medium class hotels.  Breakfast consisted of old hard cinnamon rolls, salty tough ham, hockey puck hashbrowns.  Buffet, fast hamburger stand for lunch or deli with pressed meat for sandwiches. All of the food services closed at 8PM except the deli.  Room service was slow and consisted of the same choices as continental breakfasts offered in medium class hotels.  The concierge was less than helpful, had a handicaped person with me.  Information offered for accomidations on excurisions not accurate or complete.  The featured band was a 70's has been.  Other entertainment could be found in dimly lit bars anywhere.  The ship was kept at 66 to 68 degrees, except in outside areas out of their control,to cold for comfort.

The cabin steward was excellant and did everything he could to make us comfortable.  I reccommend if you book a cruise look for another cruise line.

Did not have enough time after island tour to see anything else or do shopping. Had to be back on ship by 4PM even though we didn't sail until 11PM. Ship concert, must pay for, with a 70's band.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Parking very expensive. Embarkment crew were excellent handling handicap.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

70's has been band, enough said.

Can't think of anything that could help anyone enjoy this ship.
