Review summary

This was our first ever cruise. Service was wonderful, but I felt everyone in sales was too pushy. Otherwise crew was great to us. I was most disappointed with the mid and late day meals. Meats were served too tough and cold.

Well appointed, good use of the space but the mattresses were old, hard and lumpy. My back hurt from the first night to the last
