Review summary

The itinerary was awesome with the exception of missing Kotor Montenegro, but compared to other cruise lines we were disappointed in the food and the service in the main dining rooms and the Garden Cafe was reminiscent of a high school cafeteria, very crowded and difficult to find a place to sit.

Versailles Main Dining Room

The menu was very limited. Not once was lobster or prime rib on the menu. The service was not good, we were a party of four and often did not get our food at the same time, nor did we get what we ordered - very surprising given our previous experiences cruising.

Garden Cafe

2 out of 5

Terrible, the food was often not warm - and the way the cafe is set up you have to walk a long distance to the other side of the cafe for some food items - there was no clear direction so people were cutting into line. The cafe is very crowded, noisy and unwelcoming. We felt like we were in a high school cafeteria.

We did not get into Kotor because captain said weather did not permit, but when we notified our tour guide that we would not be coming into port he said the weather was beautiful
