Where's the beef?

Sail Date: August 22, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

First day at the buffet trying to eat the sliced roast beef. No success, it was tough and leather. Same with the stir fried beef the next day. Went to LeBistro and got their filet mignon and it was excellent as was their lobster. The new York strip in Taste main rest was soggy, like it had been in a steamer for a few hours. The service in Taste was very good but Savor was so rushed we were still eating our app when they served the entre. Best part of the cruise for us was the adults only area on deck 16 aft. Good music and always two loungers available. Cabin service was very good. The interior finish on the Getaway seemed very cheap, a lot of dark formica and plastic. Entertainment was excellent. We saw two shows in the Grammy Experience with Shannon McNally, a blues/jazz singer. For the money we will look to another cruise line.

Cabin / Stateroom
Compared the the MSC Divina cabin this was very austere.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Most expedient disembarkation ever. Priority boarding for Latitudes members was nonexistent.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Not much to do inside during the day. First cruise with no wine tasting.
Service and Staff
The predominantly Pilipino crew understood very little English.
Food and Dining


LeBistro is the best bang for the buck.
