Review summary

All guest services are in the Centrium where ultra loud music plays forcing guests to lean over the counter and shout to be heard. Very demeaning and unsophisticated to guest and staff. Anyone working here for any length of time will develop hearing loss. Pool deck was useless and very loud music was always present and the stench of cigarette and cigar came across the area. Cruise director seems to believe everyone on the cruise was or wanted to be twenty something. Average age on this cruise I would estimate to 60 to 65. After this experience we have decided to never cruise again.

Food and Dining

Staff very competent, no complaints here. Food was mediocre. Fish was way over cooked. For some reason those in charge decided the noise level in the Windjammer was not loud enough (it was very loud) so they played loud screaming rock music all the time. Main dining room was good. Excellent service from all.
