Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We only ate at the main dining room once, our waitress didn't seem to be in a great mood when we first sat, then got better. Food there was pretty good. Steak house was GREAT!! Best food we had. My opinion on rest of food, if had to pay for the other specialty restaurants minus the hibachi, would not have been happy. None of the food was hot, not that was old by any means just not HOT! Drinks were good. Favorite was the Tiramisu!! YUM Our favorite bartenders were at the Tiki, he was from Bulgaria and the girl was from Mexico! Cannot remember their names, SORRY!! We had the drink package for first time and we got to try different drinks!!
