Food and Dining
1 out of 5
The dinners were EXCELLENT, especially all you can eat. However, the cruise was advertised as all-inclusive. Yet, the second restaurant (Jade) was not included--you had to pay. Also, there was nowhere to get snack food except a pizza place, which gets old after a couple of days.

The "Tour of Atlantis" excursion SUCKED. It was basically a tour of an aquarium. That's it. We snorkeled as well, which was decent. We really liked the rock climbing on board, as well as the two men in charge of this. More activities need to be available on the ship as well. There were times when we were bored with nothing to do.

Biggest complaint! We walked in to find numerous canned drinks, bottled water, and snack foods, which we assumed were included since we paid over $1000 to go. We got a bill a couple days later with a $30 charge for the "mini bar", even though nothing was posted in our room about the prices. This is greedy and ridiculous for a ship that charges so much for the "all-inclusive" trip.
