Food allergy labeling could be more clear. We felt very oversold on all sorts of options for excursions, premium restaurant choices, next cruise sales, to use the casino, etc. In fact, we signed up for a special brunch in the Chops Grille that was to include unlimited lobster tails (which were great), unlimited mimosas (which were also great), and the finest steaks that were to be (according to our salesperson and headwater) "succulent, juicy, and tender". Yet all the steaks had by everyone on the table were overcooked, firm/not tender, dry, and lacking flavor. What a disappointment for all the hype of the sales. That was $180 not well spent and feeling like we were "taken". Having two 1/2 days on bermuda was hard to fully take advantage of and really experience Bermuda. We'd rather have 1 full day there instead of split days, or better yet, sail faster so we could have more than 24 hours on land. The decor of the ship was nice and mostly up to date (except for the viking crown lounge which looked decades old). However, other cruise lines often decorate the food areas with ice sculptures and fruit/vegatable carvings which we only saw 1 bouquet during our paid-for brunch.

Nice but comparable to all other cruise lines we've been on
