Itinerary was fine, but the ship was nothing to write home about. We found the food a big disappointment. Often it wasn't warm, and seldom was it worth eating. The ice cream, which is usually a treat was worse than McDonalds. We were in a balcony on the 14th floor and we could hear people walking around the deck above us and staff moving the lounge chairs and tables around. The tender experience, which is never a good one, was not a good experience. The hassle of having to go thru security every time you came back on board was tiresome. I suspect they weren't concerned about my safety, they were busy looking for contraband wine and liquor that might hurt their bottom line. Entertainment was not that great and the show venues were too small so if something were actually good, you wouldn't be able to get in. We watched a movie the last night where they put the house lights on 6 times during the show because obviously someone didn't know what they were doing. Never again for us.

Disappointing
