Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
It was more cafeteria style then buffet, had to wait in line to get bacon and sausage after I had my omelet made. Tables were not cleaned off and had to try to find a place to sit while the food got cold. The coffee was lousy ,not like other cruises.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
All we seen was a fitness center and pool, not many activities to do.
