Food and Dining

Dining rooms looked tired, needs updates and table coverings, Ji Ji's also needs some updates as well as having table coverings without grease stains.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Spa is tired looking, stains on curtains, chairs are very worn looking, the Serenity Spa also on most days the steam rooms didn't work, thermal bath looks very outdated, disappointing at best.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
Our service in the main dining room was terrible, horrible, the worst!!! We waited most nights an our just on our first appetizer to show up and even at that we would have some that we ordered never show up. Took one bite of our main courses and sent the rest back, didn't re-order due to the length of time it took to the the first one.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Terrible, missing the grandeur of other ships we have been on. The ship also looked in need of a face lift.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Stains of the carpets.

Ship tip

If you have any spa services, they will try and hard sell you on additions.
