Found the food passable but not very memorable. Although there were many choices of places to eat, I was very disappointed with the quality of food in the main dining rooms. The casual eating places were better. You will never go hungry, as there is food to eat around the clock. Hamburgers and french fries on deck were probably the best of all the food choices. We had 7 people in our party, ranging from 11 months to 71 years old. There were a lot of activities to keep all of us entertained. However, there were no babysitting services for young children. This made it difficult for the parents to have any free time. If you are a smoker, there are very few places designated for this. If your room is at the rear of the ship, you have to walk a country mile to get to a smoking area.

Just an average cruise

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin B4 R746
Great cabin. Many reviews about this cabin stated it is just a metal box. It is a metal enclosed area, but it is angled so that you have an unobstructed view forward. Very private and sheltered from the wind.
We had a fantastic room steward.
Found the shower a bit small and it would have been much better to have a shower head that was adjustable to either lower or raise. Even a hand held one would be better.
