Review summaryCruise was ok but felt that there were too many extra fees that usually included in other cruise lines pricing. Paying for coffee, even if it was just $4-5, just seemed silly when we were drinking call brand alcohol at no extra charge with the drink package. Most of the crew was great and were interesting to get to know but others didn't seem to care so that was kind of uneven. The rooms were comfortable and the food in the buffet was better than expected so overall good experience.
Food and Dining
Maltings Whiskey Bar
Love this bar. Very comfortable and the only bar that offered small snacks. Our waiter Gojko was excellent and we learned much about him and live in Bosnia.
Tsar's Main Dining Room
Food ok, not a comfortable place to eat. Seemed like it was trying to hard to be "fancy".
Great food and value - enjoyed the show!
Shaker's Martini Bar
Good drinks, but it sometimes the drinks had an extra charge and sometimes not.
Better than expected buffet. Good service. Wish they would have announced at the beginning of the week when Mexican night was so we could have planned our schedule to include it!
Azura Main Dining Room
Average food, good service
Comfortable place to drink and watch the view outside - especially since it was cold/or raining outside. Good drinks too.
