Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Family Balcony
Recommend eating the Asian food.  Bread is also good.

Have spent about 75 days on 8 cruises with 5 cruise lines. This was by far the worst in our experience.


Went to the Brazilian steak house Moderno and would only recommend the pineapple and beef ribs. I had the crazy idea they would serve steak from Brazil. Thank God we ate at a specialty restaurant early on as the buffet was better and didn't charge.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony

Cabin B2

Used towels instead of the pillows as the cabin had a foul odor. While new pillows helped, the shampooing of the carpet was only good until the deoderizer gave out. Have to sleep with the balcony door open.
