Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Lack of food quality in ALL areas...comparing with 13 other cruise experiences on other cruise lines. Food is poorer than budget chain buffets. Cheap and horrible wines.

Onboard Activities

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Since gratuities are compulsory for all pasangers, there is no incentive for any one of the staff or ship service personnel to "go the extra step" in helping anyone .

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I reported 3 times that the shower valves in 2 of the mens spa area were not working properly, in addition to NO soap in the dispensers. The response I got from the staff at the SPA desk was that the problem is NOT theirs to solve...that I should report it to maintenance.
