Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Have been many cruises and I have to say that the Food on this cruise was terrible even the maitre d’ who was appalling agreed that the food was very poor. Drink, well that really is just a joke, we were bombarded on arrival on the ship to buy a drinks package and then was unable on so many occasions to get the drinks that we asked for. Service by the bar staff total disgrace.

Went very well until we picked up our case to find that it must have been thrown from the top deck with the amount of damage
