Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was fine\, but not nearly as many options and choices as on other cruises. Additionally\, when we missed our dinner time\, the buffet upstairs was shut down with the exception of sandwiches and pizza. Much more limiting than other lines.


3 out of 5
The shows were average or above\, but I was surprised at how the entertainmnet died at night. We wanted to go dancing\, but there were often only one option - \"old\" slow type music.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
With the exception of one or two bar staff\, the service was awful. Nobody would ask if we wanted anything\, and when we did get someone to wait on us\, they would take a LONG time to bring back our receipts. For the most part\, they were not at all friendly.
