As we boarded for our 11 night cruise on July 24, we knew right away, we would be disappointed. The condition of the ship is poor. The ship needs a major refurbishiing if they want to compete with Princess and Celebrity.
The food in the dining room was ok but waiters always seemed overwhelmed by the quantity of customers. The size of the appetizer course was tiny. The soups were good and the main entrees tasteful but not gourmet like Celebrity. Not much selection, a lot of beef, very little fish. Dessert were ordinary.
Our cabin steward was the only positive asset on this cruise.
