Great service but food and drink needs improvement

Sail Date: October 10, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The smaller ship 'Empress' was fun, we could get around easily compared to massive ships. No one seemed to complain about it's 'smaller' size, we enjoyed it.

The staff was friendly and worked to make us happy, from Dining room to Housekeeping in our cabin - these folks were very nice and hard working.

The drinks on RC have become a bit too expensive for what was served.

Food was a disappointment both in Windjammer and especially the Dining Room

in the evenings.

Formal breakfast in the Dining Room was not good at,all, they should just remove it from the list. Brunch was OK though.

All in all after 6 R/C voyages, this one had become the least satisfying, due to food quality and temperature, and drink prices.

We probably will take another cruise line next time just to compare.
