We really liked a couple of the specialty restaurants, the buffet was OK and one of the two dining rooms was good as well. The other dining room (Versailles) we tried several times and each time was really disappointed. I was glad there were so many choices of different places to eat but at minimum they should all be good, as it would be in bad taste and rude to simply walk out if the food and service weren't up to standard as this one was. The staff at the bars were very engaging and a delight to chat with. Our room person was always very helpful in making sure we had whatever we needed. My overall experience minus the dining experience was very, very good.

We simply walked around town, it was a wonderful little town and we really enjoyed meeting the locals at the shops and eateries.

Don't Miss: Eat steamed crab at the restaurant with the red siding down around the corner from the dock. Excellent food.

Pros: Lots to do on board

Cons: some of the meals
