Review summaryFood was disappointing. Summer Place and Cagney’s were the only good meals we had. Garden cafe was awful!! Service was excellent! Every service was nice and friendly.
Food and Dining
Garden Cafe / Kid's Cafe
Couldn’t eat that food. It was like a cafeteria. Lost appetite after looking at how much people ate. It was grazing. Cattle food. Very dissapointing. Same food everyday.
Magnum's Champagne & Wine Bar
Very nice and cozy bar great bartenders
Topsiders Bar and Grill
I didn’t trust the food after I got sick first night I ate it.
Entertaining but food was horrible!!Our fried rice was greasy with whatever they used garlic butter and the soy sauce overpowered the whole dish. Yuk!!Shrimp was big and filet was tough. Cook was entertaining.
Shaker's Martini & Cocktails Bar
Loved the martini’s. Great bartenders
It was just okay
Maltings Beer & Whiskey Bar
Lotus Garden Asian Restaurant
Another terrible Asian meal. So disappointing as we were looking forward to this restaurant.
La Cucina Italian Restaurant
Couldn’t eat the pizza packed with a pond of cheese and tons of pepperoni. Disgusting. Gnocchi tasted like paste and chewy or gummy. Left without eating anything.
Bar at night was ok and fun. Coffee was horrible and bartender really didn’t want to make a espresso. Too much work I guess.
Great Outdoors Bar
Enjoyed this area late evening.
Loved our steak cooked to perfection and the shrimp cocktail was to die for. Service was excellent!
The Shopping Galleria
Like any shop
Art Gallery and Internet Cafe
Can’t believe you could not get a few free minutes. We paid almost $7,000 for a cruise and couldn’t get some internet.
Always people in it never could use it alone.
Body Waves Fitness Center
Nice view and great facility
Pearl Club Casino
Just okay like any casino
Bridge Viewing Room
Not open when we wanted to use it
Great band and music was fantastic
Bliss Ultra Lounge
Very cold inside.
