Indian food definitely needs improvement. It was bland and did not taste like Indian food. Need more vegetarian/vegan choices besides salads and fruits.

DJ was pretty good. The band at spinnaker lounge could have been better.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Loved certain staff at certain places. Pizza maker at the garden cafe really needs some customer service classes. John our bartender At spinnaker lounge was awesome!

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cleanliness was good. The couch that turns in to a bed was not comfortable and not good for a taller person.

Ship tip

Food was not as good especially the Indian vegetarian choices. They really need to improve on the taste of the food. Also, they need more vegetarian and vegan choices in all restaurants including garden cafe besides just Salads!

This needed some work. The time they gave us was way too early to meet our concierge. We had to wait over 45 minutes which could have been used eating breakfast and getting ready!
