Review summary

Nothing special at all about the cruise or ship. I was not impressed at all with the food & service. It was the worst out of all the cruises I've been on. There just seemed to be one small issue after another.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The main dining rooms service was the worst I've experienced on a cruise ship & we cruise about once per year. Most of the specialty restaurants were good with the service hit or miss. Really nothing at all impressive in this area. Seemed to have to wait a while many many times to get drinks. No straws with any drinks. At least mixing the drinks then would be helpful.

This was the most positive area about the ship. Everyone was excellent except for the magician.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The service was good except for the food service areas & casino area. Pretty much all the dealers & pit bosses in the casino were not friendly at all.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship was clean. The design was a little odd as far as it seemed we kept running into dead ends.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Nothing special & small. It was clean though.

Ship tip

Don't expect much service or special food in the main dining rooms. Also expect a wait.
