Overall we had a great time going on vacation together as a family. We took five family members and stayed in two rooms 3 and 2. The rooms were adequate for our needs. The food was just average and more often than not the only food available was the low end buffet. the wait staff was unpleasant in the restaurants and bars. Menus in the nicer restaurants seemed to be identical to each other. I would like to have seen more of a variety.

Great...cannnot say enough about how much we liked the entertainment. This would keep me coming back.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Cruise director and his group were great. Cabin boy and his staff were great. Wait staff in bars and restaurants were rude and unpleasant. Also, the cooks that prepared "made to order" meals were slow and were rude. My wife was told that the buffet line was not ready to open...she was told to come back later. It was already a few minutes late in opening and after my wife left the line the staff immediately opened the line.

Ship Quality
