You've Got To Be Kidding!

Sail Date: November 15, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

The embarkation was easy. The ship was extremely clean and well kept. The staff were from various countries, which led to difficulty in asking for things, however most could speak English. I look forward to the cusine on ships, and since this was my 81 cruise I have some knowledge of what is good and bad coming from the galley. This was the worst ever! For that reason I would never cruise this line again. The dinning experience was complete chaos, with waiters that didn't know what to do, head waiters that would not help out. Our waiter was doing seven tables a total of 29 passengers. Far too many people.
I feel the company was trying to cut costs and this has reflected on the entire ship.

Pros: Beautiful ship, very clean, easy to get around.

Cons: The Food! They even ran out of Butter!
