This was my second cruise. It was nice, but the food was definitely disappointing. The lack of entertainment for our last day of sea was also very disappointing. The staff, was the best! James was phenomenal!

The food was disappointing. Overcooked meats, not very many choices at all. Not my best experience in cuisine! My favorite was Jozesf our waiter from Hungary! He was the BEST!
