  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Verandah Suite

Lawrence was amazing in talking about wine, so much so, fasting and not eating would have been an option.

But not one beef serving was edible. We laughed at lunch when the knife could not cut the beef and the kangaroo was more tender.

Again, would go to drink wine, but fillet in Indochine tasted like liver and even cheeseburger had No beef taste.

Appears Royal Caribbean’s purchase poses issues.

Rueben sandwich at lunch had quarter inch non chewable pieces of corned beef. Corned beef hash was not edible at breakfast. Breakfast sausage was unchewable. Cheeseburger had less taste than fast food American Burger King.

Ship is nice and new, under decorated. Line must have run out of money during process.

Would return for wine lectures, but not to eat.

We laughed at lunch when the kangaroo meat was easier to cut than the beef freshly cut across the Dias. But it is not funny. This is a new magnificent ship with a crew trying so hard, a great butler, and yet you chew a piece of waygu beef, on and on, and put it back on your fork, and hide it on your plate from the attentive trying staff who are trying to do their best. Lobster tail twice with so much cartilage to be inedible. Why, we wonder, when everything else seems great.

Crew seems on edge. Butler was great but asked if we would rate him, as though things were in flux. He was great. Food was not.

Cabin was very nice. Butler and stewardess were great and responsible. Excellent. Only complaint was “beef” and lobster and not good food. Desserts were great.
