Nightmare on the sea by maryannp1999

I would never take this ship again. We have been on the Jewel and the Majesty in the past and had a wonderful experience. Overall. the rudeness of some of the staff was to much and the fact that my husband was really sick and could not get to the doctor in the 2 hours he was there... We will try another ship in the future.

I did not want to go on a cruise - any cruise. I thought I had no interest. I did it for my Wife. We are now discussing where we will be taking our NEXT cruise to.... That should tell you all you need to know.

Avoid peak times at breakfast buffet if you can

Restaurants are extremely overpriced even for New York standards. Spinnaker Lounger too small to hold trivia,dance and contest shows. Smoking anywhere on board should be forbidden. Loudspeakers in sunbathing aft deck should be OFF!

If you think these cruise ships don't read or act on your comments, I complained after our Breakaway trip and our dinner at Moderno that nothing was marked at the buffet in it. This cruise? EVERY SINGLE DISH at the buffet was marked. If you are a fan of eating all types of meat, this din is great!
