Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was average. Ordered wings with blue cheese and celery, got wings with little half full cup of dressing, and ONE small little piece of white nasty celery.....

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Hot tub and pool. Too many people allowed to "reserve" lounge chairs by just putting towel on chair, and not actually even being in pool area for hours.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Most was good. Had one night with a service hiccup. We were seated and saw no server for about 15 minutes. Turns out, our server didn't start until 6:00 PM, and we w were seated in her section at 5:30 PM. Also, when seeking answers, some acted like they didn’t work there.
