Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Specialty restaurants were nearly impossible to book and when we did succeed the food was horrible to the point that they agreed not to count it but it did not matter because we could not get in anywhere else. On Dec. 26 I told them we were celebrating my Wifes birthday, but that was not acknowledged at all.
