Review summary

destinations and excursions great.  Entertainment good. Food & service below average.  Dining room wait service worse among my 12 cruises.   Food was average.   Insulting that we have to pay for certain entrees in the main dining room.   Also, had to pay for pizza and ice cream.  Ridiculous! Buffet hours and food choices very limited.   Room amenities poor.  Entertainment was varied and everywhere during the evening.   We enjoyed the options.   Excursions and guides were great.
