Overall a good cruise, but they need to work on the food

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

The cruise overall was very nice.

The studio cabins are extremely small. The cabin steward was great!!!  I was hyped up for a stay in the Studio section, hoping the lounge area would be Hip area to hang out and meet singles. Reality set in quickly, super small cabin and this sailing had a diverse but not single centric crowd. The singles group while quite Professionally run by the Cruise director, attended 3-4 dinners. I did enjoy company.

The seas where relatively calm, but the ship being so big does catch the wind and rolls.

My main complaint was the ship feeding 5,000 people at once, does not lend itself to good food quality.

The buffet was four large quadrants of the same food. You have some great international people, but no great Chinese dishes, no Mexican food, Pizza was of the 12 inch variety and expected some Miami dish flair (but got none)

The dinning room for breakfast was sit down, but same food as the buffet. It More made me wish for a IHOP or a good Deli. Nothing great from Bakery or Pastry.

Dinner faired much better, but got if the 2-3 changing dishes don't excite you then the rest of menu was not deep enough to stave off boredom.

Very surprising, the Irish Pub was Rock Star of the cruise. Burger was good, fish and chips was Good, and the Shepherds pie was Good too.

Enough of the bad, the Entertainment was Great. Blue Man group was in line with what I remember seeing in Las Vegas. The Cirq show was excellent. It really made the cruise for me. Less
