Chose this cruise because of the destinations but felt let down by the company's dining experience in the main restaurant. Should have been a fine dining experience but the food was never hot. Stateroom was roomy and well serviced and staff all very friendly. Windjammer restaurant was great for food in mornings and any time during the day so why can't that be replicated in the main dining room. I was not impressed by the different prices charged on wines over the ship with prices in the Sapphire seeming to be higher than the Windjammer, still haven't worked out why. All in all the feelings were that we were a captive audience and RCI were going to take us for as much as they could which is a shame as it could have encouraged us to cruise more but it left negative thoughts rather than positive. Ship apparently has a refit due - hope they do something about the galleys on decks 3,4 & 5 and manage to keep the food hot once prepared.

First time cruiser
