It was our first time going on a cruise vacation with my family and a group of friends.  Found a 7-night trip a bit too long for me since there was not much for us to do on board.  The food was plentiful but no surprise and lack of variety.  Wish there were some selections of Asian food.  We were impressed by the service in the dining room though.  The waiters (Rainer, Mario and  Oksana) who served us at dining were very mindful and remembered the names of all of us (10 people), very professional.  They accommodated all of our requests. Their service was excellent and I would give them full marks!

Ship Quality

Cleanliness acceptable but the ventilation system needs improvement since the smoke of cigarette got all over the cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
There was odor in our stateroom, probably the smell from the previous guest. Would suggest they use air freshner when cleaning the room.
