We were very disappointed and felt the entertainment was factored to an age range and not to the young at heart Never again will I go with CMV cruises

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We only used the restaurant once and mainly used the buffet restaurant

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
There was virtually no on board entertainment during the day unless you count throwing a beanbag in a bucket, making a paper aeroplane, line dancing or how to take good holiday photos It felt like a retirement home on the water We were very disappointed as this was our 1st cruise
