Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
main dining rooms look fine, service was good and selection of meals for dinner was good. The problem was no tea or coffee after the dinner there. Water in bottles was available only for peoples who ordered and prepaid it before. Buffet was horrible. Very poor selection of meals, extremely overcrouded because of bad design of sitting areas. You could get tea or coffee only in the morning or between 4 and 5 pm. Later you could not get even water

Service and Staff

Extremely friendly waiters at restaurants. Great table steward Abadi at the main restaurant (table 345 etc) and room steward Joey (cabin 7206). The main problem with other personnel - lack of knowledge of English

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Layout of buffet areas and areas around pools was was very poor. and therefore overcrouded. Common areas have been clean but many time process of cleaning took place in a day time and therefore accessible areas have been even smaller. In some places, especially around pools almost all the time was smell of chemicals. Elevators work was bad, some of them didn't work at all during the whole cruise

Ship tip

To re-design common places and provide cold and hot water all the time. Don't count every cent on behalf of clients
