We booked this cruise with some friends, that we have known for a long time, he told us this was an upgrade from Royal Carribbean, their sister ship. It most definitely was not an upgrade!  This ship started out by lying to us on why it would not make all ports of call, as scheduled.  As it turned out their bottom line was more important than to give their customers a wonderful cruise experience.  Full well and knowing they are running the ship on only one good engine!!  This gave us 5 days on a ship that rocked so much that everyone we were with was sick.  This is because they could not utilize their stabilization due to their engine problems.  5 days on a ship, sick, food was not even close to what we were use to with Royal Carribean, Princess, Holland America, and more.  We have been on a dozen or more cruises.  And never had such a lack of service, in the dining room, food that was far from anything we were use to on cruise ships before.  Then the lack of entertainment, rounded this off to the worst cruise we have ever been on!  No great shows, no great bands to entertain you poolside, no drink specials, nothing to keep you happy while you are rocking away for 5 days at sea!  The worst part of all of this is they knew, they chose to sail this ship, put all 2800 passengers in jeopardy and run on one engine!  They lied as to why.  There is no excuse for this!  Their bottom line is more important!! 


Food and Dining

Dining room service, food, was not the quality as other cruises. Soups awful, steaks, paper thin. Had to keep asking for bread and water!
