Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Main dining was not so good, small portions, limited menue and I cant believe that if you wanted a steak other then the recommended menu there was a seperat menue but at a COST HOW MUCH DO i HAVE TO SPEND FOR A CRUISE THAN GET A MENUE WITH ADDITIONAL COST ?? nOT GOOD! The buffet was also limited only, on other crusie lines there was always several different buffets to choose from.

Service and Staff

Our roomstewert was great, some of the waiters in main dining was not so great ie not very friendly maybe because we were doing anytime dining ?

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
ther ship wasn't as nice as other cruise lines we have been on, and the crew was doing maintinance like hammering and chisle during the crusie some of it was right above our balcony and very disturbing !! I called and complained but nothing was done !! NEVER AGAIN !!

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The bed was very confortable and the cabin was clean but was quite small, not as big as other cruise lines we have been on. Also like I said the crew was doing maintaintence with hammers and who knows what else right above our balcony and our complaint was ignored !! NEVER AGAIN !!
