This was only our 2nd cruise the first was on Royal Caribbean, so we are only comparing the 2. We went on this cruise with the same couple as last time and they felt the same way, and talked to a few passengers who expressed some of the same complaints. First we did not feel the food was as good or well prepared. The main dining experience was not as fancy and the food did not compare either. Most of the workers were friendly enough although our experience on other cruise was more enjoyable. I am not a big eater but the 3 times I went to the meat carver in the BUFFET line he would only give me tiny proportions even though I kept asking for more I felt like I would of had to get mad to get a piece of meat from him. Mostly we did have fun, rooms were kept clean, but all in all we would choose Royal next time. Tom

thought the locals looking for trips were rude, and pushy
