Un-inspiring on so many levels but fun for New Years Eve

Sail Date: December 30, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Cabin: v-7

This is an old ship with an awkward layout. It was refurbished and looked pretty and was very clean. We chose it only because we like the New Years Eve experience. The food was mediocre. I had some filet mignon that tasted like shrimp and smelled like it too. Perhaps it was just spoiled The waiter never apologize and just dumped it in the waste containers. We are frequent cruises and we thought the staff was subdued and many were going thru the motions. I felt bad for the first time cruisers. Did not want them to think all cruises were like this one. Bright side, our room steward was A+. We had a Jr. Suite which had a 3 foot wide balcony bearly enough to fit  2 chairs and our legs. The gym with all its weights banging was on the floor above us. It was a waste of money. Others on our V deck felt the same.
