Food was terrible. The specialty restaurants were worse There was nor-virus on the boat which they did not tell us about for 3 days. The windows on the stateroom were dirty on the first day and were not cleaned. There was no entertainment to speak of. They had the crew try to do a show. lol  Days at sea with no entertainment or anything to do but  not try to stave from the bad food or get sick form the virus.  Do no eat the seafood!

Old design. TV was aimed improperly so you can not see when in bed. I reported twice but never got help. Glass door was dirty. Had to request a top sheet!!!

Ship Tip

Be wary! Took two hours to get feed until we found a good server. She was a big improvement. Norvirus was on ship very quick but they did not tell us about it for three days. An honest employee told me when I asked what was going on

Nothing there

They would not let us off. After that many days at sea they should find a port that it is certain you can disembark
