Cruising's not what it used to be

Sail Date: March 20, 2016

Room Type: Balcony

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).

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

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