Admittedly, this is the oldest ship we've ever cruised on, but after going on newer ships, it's hard to go backwards. Food lines in buffet are problematic although crew tries to direct you to alternative places they've set up for food. Food itself in buffet is much like a cafeteria - lots of variety, very average quality. Ice milk from machine when you might get frozen yogurt or ice cream on another ship. Had dinner for $10 cover charge in II Adagio, the Italian specialty restaurant. Food and service were only slightly better than in main dining room. Live band only one afternoon by pool. Other times, female DJ just spun different tunes. Little kids swarmed hot tubs by pool.
Compared to other cruises, crew didn't smile alot, didn't greet you when passing in halls or buffet. They were responsive if you asked them for something, although we had two requests we made by phone to guest services and we had to call back a second time.
Nightly shows mostly average. Very old looking singer did Gloria Estefan tribute show. Much too loud. Good comedian.
