Great ship, food not so good

Le Boreal Cruise Review by Uncle Bobby

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2014
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Suite

I choose the ship and trip expecting to be fed interesting French cusine rather than the typical steam table cardboard. Apparently quite a number of the other guests expected the same and were as disapointed as I was.

Breakfasts and lunches were typical shipboard fare, pleasantly presented and abundant. Bacon at breakfast was tasteless and rubbery, difficult to chew.

Soups at lunch and dinner were generally good with the rare excellent.

Dinners were mainly medicore except for one memorable meal which served properly seasoned and cooked lamb chops. They were tender and juicy! The included wines were drinkable at best.

The wait staff, cabin attendants and ships crew in general were outstanding. The physical ship was comfortable and well maintained.

The open bridge policy was a welcome amenity especially on the Canal transit.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Suite

Cabin was spacious for one, well designed and pleasant to be in. Upper deck (deck 6) with easy access to lounge and buffet restaurant although I generally dined in the Main restaurant on Deck 3.
