Seems like they are cutting amenities and service in an effort to balance the books. It is the small things that were missing that were most noticeable.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Cheaper or more economical meals were served. Lot of chicken and starches. Always long lines at pizza\, hamburger and hotdog station. Anything fried was not well drained and soggy. Nothing noteworthy eaten during voyage. We even had salad on one night and pizza on another. Room service not worthwhile. Brunch menu strange. Ice cream good. Long wait for omelet at breakfast and wok at lunch. No carving station at lunch. Late nightpoor choices Iif at all. No midnight buffet here.

Not much of interest without a fee. Lot of trivia games. No imagination.
