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.
