Tenders were impossible, then fight for chairs as it was on ship We stayed 30 minutes then went back to hopefully a vacant ship It was quite but also closed most bars so no drinks at spice


4 out of 5
Just get in line , we listened to a crew member and ended up in back even though we were first ones down
