Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Bar tenders were great especially Fred in the Champagne bar. Several of us got sirloin steak in the main dining room, meat was tough, a very poor cut. No lobster!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We are retired so do not do some of these. Mostly the weather was too cold for the pool, in fact it wasn't open most of the time. South America in summer is still chilly. We did use spa which was great, you could go in and use their steam room and sauna anytime.
