Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The menu was quite limited and almost same everyday. Two different restaurants that we tried, four seasons and seven seas had the same menu and nothing better to offer as compared to the buffet. A couple of items were being prepared in the buffet area, pasta and asian. These cooks refused to make any variations in these items being prepared. buffet area did not have enough space for the # of passengers

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Add more sports, such as roller blading, rock climbing, etc.

you need to add more shows and better variety. Change Philippino hosts or train them better.

Even though his jokes were stale, the cruise director was quite talented. The stand up comedy was good.
