Review SummaryThis cruise is for older people. Activities were extremely limited and the cruise director did not do a good job of hyping up and publicizing events. Events were lack luster and every ends at around midnight. If you are a night owl, this cruise is not for you. However, there were a few shows that were entertaining.
The inclusive food is mediocre and it was a nuisance trying to cruise "freestyle" like the company promotes when dining in each area is limited to certain hours. The food that is inclusive did not taste good. Some of it was good like the salmon but all else was blah. Don't try anything fried but it never comes out crispy. Just soggy. However, although not inclusive, the restaurant Le Bistro is good. Some of the servers were rude and made dining unpleasant. Overall, I'm not ever going to cruise here again. The princess cruises are much better. Heck, I'd even try carnival cruise next time. At least I hear they low how to party.
