Food and Dining

Main dining room food was excellent. Specialty restaurants, not so much! Did not enjoy the food in Chops (filet mignon was not tender); Giovanni's Restaurant was good except for the lamb chops.

This was the first time I ever disembarked early, was an easy process. They kept my SeaPass card (BOO-HOO), I usually keep all of them for souvenirs.
