Does not compare to the 138,000 +/- gross ton ships out there. For the most part pretty well maintained but a little boring. The excitement was visiting the Baltic!
Food average overall, and many items were pretty good, but a lot of repetition. But horrible soups across the board, not even a basic quality. Coffee consistently horrible! Then I asked some questions and this is what I found out. Of the four coffee stations in the main buffet each was being brewed with varying amounts of coffee and water? To compound things once an urn got down by 75% they would brew a fresh batch on top of the old coffee! This went on all day! Also, coffee left from breakfast would be left in the hot urns through lunch, so some coffee sat in the urn for almost fours, plus you have the fresh over old effect resulting in even more gross coffee in the evening....yuk. FYI, brewed coffee in heated urns (or otherwise) start a downhill slide in quality after 50 minutes. , a small item but very important to me and many others I'm sure! Everyone complained about the horrible coffee. It takes a seasoned F&B Director to recognize this problem and fix it.
Asian rest would not survive as a street restaurant. Can you imagine an Asian themed soup that was 80% canned creamed corn with little else? Very pathetic
Overall met our expectations
