Smokers near the pool was disappointing. Crowd control was bad. Everyone got coughs. Food is average. Still made the best of it and enjoyed it. Was sad it ended.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffet was predictable. Gravy and custard were watery. Difficult to access and find food we wanted. Staff were very helpful and work hard.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Soft archery which was done as a competition as was EVERYTHING so the fun factor was gone. Trivia in tiny bars which were over crowded.

Ship tip

Don't have high expectations. Don't miss the ice show. Go to the R Bar and meet Raj who does great cocktails.
