Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was very good. What we really liked was happy hour At the bar in Wounderland. They should always have this happy hour at this restaurant as this was the first time we heard of a happy hour on a cruise ship. The only bad experience we had was the following. I am gluten free and if you sit in the dinning for breakfast and are gluten free be prepared to wait Half an hour to get two pieces of gluten-free toast. If you have breakfast in the solarium the only gluten-free they have it’s a choice of three different pieces of bread no gluten-free muffins, no gluten-free cakes. The only place that they cater to gluten-free is the main dining room and the pizza place. The waiters in the main dining room were fantastic and eager to please I had no problem. We were on the ship for Mother’s Day and they had a big spread a beautiful cakes must’ve been 40 different layer cakes but no gluten-free.

Ship tip

One good tip is when you leave the ship after cruise take your luggage with you. The last port on this cruise was Vancouver and it was a complete mess with the luggage.

Getting our luggage was a Nightmare. Our luggage was supposed to be in section four and we found the luggage in section one. It was a complete mess.
