Review summary

The cruise ship needs a new chef and some new recipes.  The food was very up and down.  The Horizon buffet was terrible.  Had a hard time getting a seat for breakfast and lunches.  The food at Sabatini's was very good, and even the food in the Bottacelli dining room was only fare for breakfast.  Cold food that should have been hot was a regular occurrence.  And none of the dining rooms or buffet could make a decent omelet or scramble eggs.  The beds were lumpy and sagging even when I ordered a mattress topper.

It was ok. Nothing special. The Regal Princess is the best.
