I believe our cruising days are over. The food quality was fair at best, except for the specialty steak restaurant which was $85.00 EXTRA-Ridiculous! The staff with few exceptions was nonchalant and looked like they hated being there. Everything costs extra,first time we'd ever seen $20 for a steak during "complimentary"dinner. Sorry folks, when you add in the MANDATORY tips to everyone, your daily room rate doubles. You can book a cruise on the first class cruise lines for that. The shore excursions booked through you were by day 1) terrible, 2) very good, 3) fair, 4) good (excellent guide).

We had to ask for water and never got a towel animal on our bed.

Ship Tip

The atrium was not very luxurious and on many decks you couldn't get from one end of the ship to the other.
