We have cruised on 4 different ships, including this one. This ship was the worst of the 4. The food was 

marginal at best, and the help was not the friendliest. Our cabin boy was very nice, and a couple of people on the Lido food area were also nice. The ship was very clean.

i ended up in the emergency room on the ship, and I must say, the nurses and the Dr. Were wonderful.

The ship was very clean and smooth ride..
