The dining experiences were perfect in every way. I never could run out of choices and my drinks never ran low. The food was superb and the employees were wonderful in every way.

The food was excellent, with a huge range of variety. The hardest decisions I had to make for those 2 weeks aboard ship were which amazing restaurant to eat at each night!

The food; oh my, the food. Spectacular at every meal and every venue, whether it was room service breakfast, sit down dinners at the Chef's Table, or (my preference) cruising the buffet at every meal.

The food was second to none and it didn't matter if you ate in the main dining room or a specialty restaurant.

Dining, oh the food, everything and anything my heart desired, ordering on or off the menu. Attention to detail was evident down to the Versace table setting and Chihuly Glass Chandelier and art.

As expected all meals were a 10. Even the buffet had a tremendous selection of beautifully prepared food, lots of seating and never rushed. Always exceptional service and you just could not go long before a server was at your elbow for anything.
