Review SummaryThe ship is lovely. Its like and adult theme park. Plenty of room at the pools. But it seems that this cruise was the Wal Mart of cruising. Plenty of everything but nothing in particular to make you feel a little pampered. It was clean, and pretty easy to navigate the different areas.
Ive been on a number of cruises, and this was the most bare bones when it came to food. The big midnight buffet was quiet a show, but the beautiful cakes were never seen the entire cruise, even at dinner. As a matter of fact, I can hardly recall any of the prepared items from this buffert EVER BEING SERVED during the cruise. Quite dissapointed. Probably would not sail this line again.
Food and Dining
Neither of us are big eaters, so quality ranks first. I happen to be an excellent cook (once owned my own restaurant), and really enjoy fine prepared foods. This definetly was not so on this line.
Service and Staff
I did not like haveing to provide our own towels at the pools. No tote was offered to carry the towels from the rooms to the pool AND THEN BACK to the room, or be charger $20.00 for a missing towel! And not ONCE was water or and iced tea offerd at pool side. The restaurant that served any refresments was quite a hike from the pool itself.
