Disappointing Cruise line

Sail Date: June 23, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

The ship was nice, the room great, the organization for embarking and disembarking was great. Was nickel and dimed!!! 10 restaurants were pay for vs. 4 that were part of the cruise. Since there was not set time for lunch dinner, don't see the same staff thus there is no relationships which made the service really sub par. Even the room person was not that friendly. I have been on about 8 cruises and this one had poor service and food. Even 1 of the "Pay" restaurant's food was subpar.
Staff get auto tipped thus service was poor.

I would not recommend this cruise.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
restaurants were sub par
Cabin / Stateroom room was awesome
Service and Staff
was adequate
you had to pay for acts
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
this was excellent


Breakfast at the Garden is good and so is lunch. Rest of the restaurants that were provided was not very good. The service staff was poor because they don't have an incentive to be nice. You don't have a set schedule for dinner and they are auto tipped.
10 restaurants cost and only 4 free
