Review SummaryWe went on board with no expectations due to a bad previous cruise ( Carnival ) so were going only for the country music and ports of call. We had read so many negative reviews that we just were not expecting any positives at all. however it is a great ship, very clean and well run. Friendly, outgoing and entertaining crew. Lounge singers other than the activities crew left a bit to be desired however I do not believe they were professionals so you get what you pay for. I would have thought that if it is a theme cruise more entertainemnt would be geared to the theme. SInce it was during the Olympics and this is a european ship I would have thought that they might have had some time or a room devoted to it. Sports bar might be a suggestion however given the status of television on board it might be a challenge.
Food and Dining
the activities people made up for this with all their programs. The Zebra lounge was the best entertaiment on the ship, The activities the crew put on ie trivia contests etc even the pool area they really got people up and having fun! This was a big positive and they are a real asset to the ship, it cannot be easy to get people participating and involved when there is so many different languages and nationaliies on board and yet they did it every day and evening, the activities crew are really to be commended.
Service and Staff
at first one soon can get around with ease.
