Buffet was adequate but nothing special. Main dining room entrees where average including veal liver--not good. Beef meat was tough. Only one area had aceptable coffee.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Cabin stewards friendly and outgoing.
Dining room waiters and helpers were running around like chickens with there eads cut off--no appearent organization

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Furniture and deck on the aft deck was covered daily in greasy sud from the engine exhausts. Mentioned at front desk several times until about the 7th day when an effort was made to clean chairs and floor. Ruined two pairs of pants and one shirt. Awkward to get to the aft dining room on the 5th level. Had first to get to the 6th level and then back down. Sewer smell noticeable in hallway on 4th and 6th levels almost through-out the cruise----unaceptable.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
