Terrible experience on this ship! The food was horrible! There was no place to just sit and view out the windows in peace and quiet. The areas always had a bar near them which was loud. They also had a stage that usually had loud music, etc playing. There was not much entertainment for older people except for the nightly shows and those shows were great! That was the only thing about this ship we enjoyed except the cabin. Guest services was rude. Couldn't find out information about anything. The last 2 ports we stopped at were only 4-5 hours - not time to do/see anything. The cabin, which was an inside cabin at the front of the ship, was very good. The steward was nice and took very good care of us. They were constantly trying to see us something: Jewelry, photos, excursions, cruises! They had "specialty restaurants" which you had to pay to get in. I guess that is where the good food was served because it was sure not good anywhere else on that ship.

Terrible!
