Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Food on the ship in general was excellent! We didn't use any of the specialty restaurants. Main dining room and buffet were both excellent, with good variety, excellent quality.

The crew on this ship were professional, courteous, and very positive! Great experience!. Our room steward, Nasiry was especially good, and should be singled out.

Layout of the ship was good. The crew endeavored, successfully, to keep it in tip top shape throughout the week. Well done!
