Food and Dining

Breakfasts were terrible, both lunch and dinners were only fair. Drinks was good. Two decent dinners in the dining room the entire cruise.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Boring and certainly not entertaining.......Cancelled two ports and certainly not enough going on on-board with all the extra days at sea.
