Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

The food? Please. Dont ask. Just plain poor. Even by lower standards, the food as nearly tasteless. The breads were ok. All meats are pre-frozen and cut paper thin. In fact, almost all items on the menu are pre-frozen.

Good child program. My kiddies liked it.

Service and Staff

Ok, looks like they begin to realize they are on a lower quality ship, and start to act that way.

Ship Quality
