The excursions were the highlight of the trip. There were wide ranged and exciting. The cruise ship was clean, and the rooms were well kept by the minute. However, the food was disappointing. The selection in the main dining room was the biggest disappointment. We seldom found what we wanted. What we chose, like steaks, were over/under cooked. They were gracious to bring you anything and everything on the menu, but it took way to long. One night, it took two hours to eat after we were seated, and we left before the dessert. We ate at the buffet one night as to not eat in the dining room. The buffet set up is cafeteria style, where other cruise ships use the kiosk method(less waiting). The entertainment was very good.

My room was under the buffet dining room(cleaning) and next door to a family that stayed up all night. There were some nights we could not sleep because of the noise 11pm-3am..
