Food and Dining
Buffet food was great. Ate at the Blue Lagoon twice-awful, breakfast and late lunch- both times.
Wanted sit down dinner every night but the wait was long. So tried Brazilian - very good, Italian - ok, Japanese hibatchi - ok. Basically none of the extra charge restaurant were worth it. But felt we didn't have much choice if we wanted to eat between 630 and 730.
Ship Quality
It was very large and it took a few days to know where different places were,
Cabin / Stateroom
