Worst cruise line I have ever been on!

Sail Date: May 11, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Food was horrible. Free style sailing is a pain! Hard to get into restaurants, some have $20 cover per person!. Everythjing on this ship costs extra! Rooms are really small and the mirrors were dirty. Rooms are made up as late as 5:00PM. Can't find seating in main dining so you walk around with your plate of food for quite awhile. No trays for food here, they make it difficult to get too much of theawful cafeteria type food. On board "bug" (which I got and was in bed for two days) caused the ship to go into hyper sanitation mode slowing the food process even more as we had to be served everything by the staff. You could see the bottom of your cup through the watered down coffee. They really are focused on the "bottomline" and you feel like your enjoyment is not their primary concern .

Pros: Embarcation and disembarcation good.

Cons: FOOD! Seating in dining rooms, extra expense for everything including gym facilities.Small rooms dirty rooms.Staff seems depressed.
