Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was mostly Asian . They switched the menus in the main dining room from a western menu to strictly an Asian menu.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Not much to do on this ship while at sea. They need more activities such as bingo, and other games in which many people may participate.
