Review summary

Overall the food was fair, but not great. The 11th floor aft buffet space is too bunched up and crowded for guests movement around the buffet and between the tables. There is barely enough room for two way walking traffic at the service lines. Moving the rails 1/2 meter out from the service bar would help. Move the larger tables out of the aft window viewing areas and put smaller tables for two guests in their place. There are many windows that could be easily washed from the deck that are very dirty all around the ship. Having picture windows on a ship that are unnecessarily dirty is very poor staff management.
