Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Main dining room food was above average. Lido deck experience (cafe style) - below average to poor. Insufficient personnel. Personnel mostly didn’t smile or positively interact. Refreshments had to be sought out. Food selection poorly laid out - example: no butter at bread station. Difficult to obtain simple things because of glass everywhere - example: oatmeal - I had to wait in line because it was at the same station as multiple other offerings and the was only one, often slow, unhappy, server. Burgers only available at poolside.

Ugh. Tour was hit with locals hawking items. Tour leader was not good.
