Drinks were WAY TO Expensive. $8 for a beer ??. The dinners were kind of simple. Nothing great nothing bad.

Room Steward went above and beyond as bed was hard. he provided extra padding. the main dining room wait staff was great !

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Its very dated and the rooms are dated. Most were clean. the balconies were NOT clean and the banister was extremely sticky/tacky where you didn't want to touch it.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Clean=YES, size was fine but comfort was just ok. Couch was dirty/stained, bed was hard as a rock.. décor was very dated, no new data ports for newer technology.
