Worst breakfast buffet ever

Sail Date: December 01, 2013

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ports of visit were beatiful. The stateroom is spacious and clean. We enjoyed evening show everynight and it was great. The staff were very good as usual.

My dissatisfaction were two areas.
1, Breakfast buffet.
It was terrible. I am a good eater and usually don't complain about food. But this was the worst buffet I ever had! Scrambled egg must had too much water added (?to save money).
I had to eat with a spoon not a fork. Bacon was tasteless and no flavor. It was like chewing a card board. Sausage was too salty and tasteless. No smoked salmon could be seen anywhere(most cruise ships serve smoked salmon on breakfast).

Overall impression is that it tried to serve cheap meals to make more money.
2.Selling bottled water in dining room.
It was really stupid and annoying policy that guest should buy water bottle in dining room.
It may be European custom, but it's really annoying policy for American traveler.

Pros: Excellent itinerary, stateroom and entertainment

Cons: Breakfast buffet and charging water bottle in dining room
