Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Mediocre food overall;not as good as Cunard, princess, holland-Amer. Breads were excellent, pastries not,soups need work, all tasted like something out of a package mix.
Cabin / Stateroom
Carpets spotted and stained, needed shampooing instead of vacuming.Pillows smell bad even with request for change. Otherqwise, room was fine.
Service and Staff
cabin steward was excellent. Submitted compaint re discourteous and dismissive treatment from Shore Excursion desk; left bad taste for balance of cruise.
Enjoyed 2 productions, 'Band on the run" and "Cirque."Wish they had movies on a big screen instead on the in room telly.
