The quality of the food and choices were greatly diminished from other cruises I have taken.


1 out of 5
The quality of the shows was below what I had expected. The aerial acrobatics was entertaining.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
The staff did not "earn" their wage. Most knew the daily allotment was automatic and completed their duties at half effort. The room steward was very good and some of the bar staff made an effort to remember me.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The staff did a good job removing empty glasses and cleaning the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room for 3 occupants was cramped. This was an inside cabin.
