Food and Dining

There’s the rub. You have to book the fancy places before you get on the ship. Now that I know that, I will able to go to the best ones. That being said, they must be amazing, because the two we DID get to go to, the wants that weren’t fully booked, were great. And the buffet was ample for those other times. I appreciated the people spraying sanitizer in and out of the buffet(washy-washy!)

Moderno Churrascaria

I’m older, there maybe could be something geared to us.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Can’t get a reservation to shows, and the comedians were mediocre. If you like karaoke, it’s terrible. They give it an hour, maybe an hour and a half, and the selections suck.

Cabin / Stateroom

More sockets near the bed are needed (COAP machine and phone chargers). Everything else typical and good . Maybe there should be a sign going in that says your electricity won’t work without journey key card in the proper slot.

Ship tip

Pay attention to the pre-sail e-mails and reserve your spots.
