Overall Cruise is great, but ship has some problems

Sail Date: June 25, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: 9584

The entertainment overall was really good.  The number of activities available was also very good.  The food was good pretty much everywhere except Le Bistro and O'Sheehans.  Le Bistro being a specialty restaurant had very poor staff and poorly prepared foods.  Steak came out way undercooked, and mussels were the size of 1/4 tsp and had sand all in them.  Not what I expected.  O'sheehans has awful prime rib on special nights and service is really, really slow.   The comedian was Larry Omaha and he was really bad.  I heard the rest of the comedian were good.  I found the shows really good.  The ship's layout is all geared toward Haven suite travelers.  They get all of the space, so there is very little pool deck space.  There are limited public areas and an odd layout.  If you want some free coffee, forget about getting that anywhere except at the buffet.  I would have expected them to offer this at the Atrium Café, but no go.

Do not go to Le Bistro


If you want a pool or h20 spice chair with some shade, get there at 6:30am or earlier.
