You will stick to your diet as the food is terrible, you won't be hurried as you will be standing in line and you will stay humble because the crew is so very rude. The bloom is off the rose on this ship, we lost one engine on this cruise, the linens are frayed and it is badly in need of attention. The cruise director sets the tone for an arrogent and odd staff.
There is a problem on any cruise ship when 3,000 guests want 500 pool chairs, it is worse here when they sell 50 or so of them so now it is only 450 chairs. The windjammer restaurant, (main buffet) is simply terrible when compared to other ships, crowded, poor variety and low quality. There are very few entertainment choices and only one poolside band who plays the same songs every day.
It seems that years of cost cutting are catching up with this ship to provide a low quality experience, a crew who hate their job and the guests and few options for entertainment. Again and again we heard people say "I can't wait to get off this ship".
