Review summary

As stated above, food was bland and one evening my Son found a hair in his entree in Portofino Dininng Room. Ugh! Was not impressed as many staff made no eye contact, did not smile, etc and seemed steward (or someone) continuously made our cabin hotter. Further, bed did not seem fresh—smelled like saltines. And, we were not given our complimentary robes as I requested online prior to departure.

Steve Cauette was a funny comedian. Brent & Sarah’s magic show was not impressive and I could not wait for it to end.
