Good Cruise, if you get beyond the painful boarding process (4 hr wait to board)

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Staff was helpful and friendly, entertainers were great, and the excursions were wonderful. Ship was lovely, food was fine but not real special (fish and chicken were dry), but abundant. Formal dining area mostly had the same offerings as the buffet, while the staff expected more tips for and reminded us of the additional envelopes provided for this purpose.

The buffet serves the same offerings as the formal dining room, without a time specification. Eat at your leisure.
