A Bit Dissapointing

Sail Date: May 16, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was nice, clean and attractively decorated but that is where it ends. Overall the cruise was just average to below average. The best part of this ship was by far the room. It had plenty of closet and living space and a slightly smaller than average shower.

The dining room staff was less than friendly and were short handed
The Staff on board made us feel as if we were just a bother because it was a repostion cruise
FOOD ON BOARD WAS PATHETIC at BEST!!!!! Worst food I have ever had on 7 cruises by far. The Buffet was really poor as far as layout, selection, quality and taste.
During the entire cruise the temperature on the ship was extremly warm as if they never turned on the air conditioning through the public areas and the rooms also would not cool very well. Thankfully it was not warm out and we could open the balcony door for cool air.
Very disorganized dismbarkation process.

Pros: Room Size

Cons: Service and Food

Recommends Island Princess? No.
