Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The main dining room food was terrible and the presentation was nonexistent. The buffet had many problems, instead of opening many buffet stations, only two or three were open with very very long lines and the same entrees seemed to be served at every dinner buffet.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Room steward, Aileen, was excellent! The waiters in the main dining room were ok, but were not on the same level as those on other ships we’ve cruised on.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Great layout, great public restrooms...the carpeting throughout the cabin hallways and cabins must be replaced ASAP.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Great size and layout, carpet needs replacing.

Ship tip

Skip the main dining room and eat at the buffet; be prepared for long lines and guests cutting the line. Pizza is not free and not worth paying for.

Delayed by 8 hours due to fog. The waiting place in the theatre was freezing cold. Costa should have played some movies in the theatre.
