Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The Garden cafe had a great variety of international cuisine. The food was excellent! The service was great. Dinner at Cagneys was just ok. My scallops were under cooked. We actually enjoyed our surf and turf at the main dining room Savor more than the filet mignon at the specialty restaurant Cagneys. We wished they had more sugar free options.
