Review summary

We had been to all ports before. We just like cruising. After 54 cruises it's still what we like.The food was the most disappointing. I guess they have to cut corners somewhere to keep the ships full.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Breakfast in the Diamond section was great, the service was a one. Lunch in the buffet was less than great. The food was disappointing. Dinner in the dining room was not as good as I have had in the past. The service was good. The menu was lacking.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
There were more activities in port day than sea days. I think they want you to shop on ship.
