Review summary

I loved the itinerary but bad weather made us unable to stop in two places. Was disappointed but will have to try again to get to PEI. Always happy to be cruising, will say not my worst cruise but close to it due to ship. I did love entertainment.

Food and Dining

Fair.... get you to take the liquor package and not enough staff in bars to serve you. They give you the drink and pay for a water. That’s ridiculous. Food terrible in one of their main dining rooms other one was comp Different same food but wait staff understood English and were prompt and food was much and hot!
