Everything I had in MDR was very good. Ate at Alfredo’s for lunch several times. First time to try the Pub Lunch - liked it so much we went twice

Onboard Activities

Always something to do , trivia, NFL games shown movies under the stars , relaxing back by the sanctuary and of course the Casino Liars club was great, as was the marriage match game and passenger feud

We had seen the shows and one of the comedians on previous cruises. We enjoyed the second comedian Simon Cotter and the singer Jennifer Singer.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Older ship so definitely shows her age. There was a drain problem in the Casino which flooded apparently several staterooms on deck 5 flooded and passengers had to be moved. Casino was closed for 2-3 days (during port days) where you could not even walk through -had to dry our the carpets etc
