Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Thursday poolside fiesta at 3PM too close to early dinner. Consider late seating for this work-week cruise which also allows for port departure viewing. Chocolate buffet at midnight only suitable for nightowls. Variety and quality of food above average.


3 out of 5
Music and dance revue high energy but lacking variety. Comedy night was much better. Would have enjoyed certain Indiviual/small group performances if earlier in day or evening.

Service and Staff
