It was OK

Sail Date: November 26, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

We went as a family of 4, all over the age of 21 yrs.


We did had a great time in terms of amenities and service.  My only comment is about the food that was served.


Even though there is a lot of variety, I found the quality to be a grade B or C.

This was our first cruise and we always heard about how many lobster and steaks you could eat.  Well the lobster were in the bottom of the ocean and the steaks served make Golden Corral a grade A place.


If you wanted to eat a grade A steak in the cruise, you needed to make a reservation on one of their prime restaurant and paid extra.


I think that with the amount of money they make on each of these cruises, that the food will be better.

We took the jeep excursion which included snorkeling. There was none because of the weather (even though it was a clear day).
