Always something different on buffets, main dining room lovely, attentive service, delicious. Did not use speciality restaurant, too high service charge, $35.00 plus up charges by what you ordered.

Cabin bathrooms are very tired, need to be updated. Mine had a bathtub that was very high, bars on the walls to hang onto to get in and out, but having two knee replacements, still had hard time getting in and out. Can’t imagine being in my 80s and doing that.
