Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffet restaurant like a school cafeteria, same food every day, soups are way too salty wondering if they use the sea water to cook. only two other restaurant to choose which are always long waiting lines in front.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
swimming pool and hot tubs are good and clean. Dancing ball is good, spent a night there. Library is OK, Gym is fine and well maintained. all others are costing money, include the casino.
