Review Summary

The food in the buffet area was terrible - a lot offered, but awful...The dining room food was alright-but definitely NOT great (and I'm NOT a "picky eater"!)...The other 2 dining rooms where you have to pay extra to, I guess, get better food we didn't go to - paid enough for the cruise let alone paying more to get better food was ridiculous..The service by the staff was very good-but they weren't overly friendly or go out of their way..Our balcony room was excellent-thankfully that saved the cruise..The ports were good-except for Juneau -would NEVER go there again (VERY rundown!)
