We were kind of excited when we enter the cruise line as we always been looking forward to this cruise. Throughout the cruise, we were quite satisfied with the ship crew, their service, their attitude and their friendliness. All the cruises we took, we were quite satisfied with the food . However, with this particular cruise we were very disappointed with the menu on both the buffet and the dinner. I think we don't have to avail ourselves and pay more for the specialty restaurants to eat good and special dishes which were available in other cruiselines.We likewise, surmised that the entertainment you had was quite mediocre. There was only one act every night, there used to be three or more acts before plus some of the performers were boring.Overall, the only saving grace were the excursions we purchased, otherwise, we will consider this cruise a great waste of our money.
