Review summary

I expected more and next cruise will be trying a newer ship and one with more activities for the kids outside the kid rooms designated for them. Food and entertainment are important and they let me down

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Embarking was great

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Very disappointed in the food, dining room food was small portions and Buffett was bland with same thing every day, was expecting dining room to be like a five star restaurant and Buffett to be something exciting but was just blah

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Trivia was fun except for questions were obviously thought up by the crew not from the USA. People during trivia were booing at the questions. Other than that magician was great, comedian sucked people walked out.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Comedian horrible noodles Levensteun Magician Alex Ramon was great, other shows blah

Children's Programs

2 out of 5
Activity rooms only, had nothing else focused on ship for the kids

Service and Staff

So so. Suite attendant was rude named Rolly. You would ask for something and he would question why? I’m used to the response, “let me see how I can accommodate

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Layout great but ship is old and tired

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5

Don’t, book a newer ship
