Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

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!   

Cabin / Stateroom
There was odor in our stateroom, probably the smell from the previous guest. Would suggest they use air freshner when cleaning the room.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Cleanliness acceptable but the ventilation system needs improvement since the smoke of cigarette got all over the cruise.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Not much to do
Children's Programs
Did not participate.
Service and Staff
Rainer, Mario, Oksana and Joseph (the Head Waiter)
Food and Dining
There is room for improvement on the quality of the food. Should add more varieties of food and be creative.
