Review summary

I probably would not sail on this ship again due to the dining room food. There was 7 of us and we all felt the same way. More dislikes then likes. I have cruised 27 times and never encountered this before,

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining room was mostly disappointing . The lido deck was usually good. Service was great. One concerning thing I observed by the pool grill was the cook handling raw hamburger with his plastic gloves and then handling the buns. That could get you very sick or kill you. Ship is clean. The cabin toilet water always smelled of urine,that was really gross. My cabin chair had dirt on it,which I cleaned with Lysol wipes and had a lot of hair on it. I usually go over the cabin just because of things like that.
