Review summary

Great food , great staff , great ports , not impressed with greenhouse spa staff , or prices . And preferred doing our own thing at ports , like hop on hop off busses , a lot cheaper , and not as rushed as cruise excursions . And be prepared for rude people at Lido dining area ( pushing in ) but that's not cruise lines fault .

Best Fillet Mignon ever had in my life .

Lido Restaurant

3 out of 5

Food good , staff great , passengers terrible , one lady at the table next to us leaned over and took my wife's cutlery while my wife was getting food , I was sitting at the table ( shocked). Another lady leant over the railing from the food area , just as I was about to sit down at a table and said "this table is mine! " . (there was nothing on the table , and glasses were still upside down ) . Other passengers pushed in line . Just be prepared for that .

Onboard Activities

Greenhouse Spa And Salon

1 out of 5

Over priced + misleading sales tactics , Was told for $399 unlimited spa use while on board . WRONG . We had 2 cruises back to back ,only valid for 1 cruise . Should have been explained Clearly only valid for half OUR cruise. Found the free spa by the pool better anyway , people watching ,plus view of ocean , drinking cocktails . Also a weight loss program they advertise , that you will loose 8cm in one session ( to good to be true ) ..

Casino Action

3 out of 5

There was an announcement on the last day , we had to go to the casino to collect our winnings , when we went there it was shut , was told by guest services to contact head office after the cruise .
