Coffee is disappointing outside of the main restaurant. In the buffet it is instant coffee which I would understand if this wasn't a semi-luxury cruise. You can buy espresso's for a reasonable price but the wait is normally long. Good food. Including buffet. Not as good as celebrity but better than Viking ocean. I found that there wasn't enough food 3pm to 6pm but you could find in four different places. the kitchens were very responsive to diary free vegetarian travelling with us.. The snow-freeze icecream machine is normally open in buffet to help yourself to. Very very easy to get drinks. Even though we were on a drinks package, the (free) drinks are everywhere. Good service of drinks everywhere (is this because the tip is automatically charged even for those of beverage package)? The last afternoon of the cruise is 'at sea' and they create a really fun semi-party atmosphere. Although everyone is on the ship, there are still seats available in most places (except in the shade directly next to the pool). The buffet is especially nice that lunchtime and there is also a very nice BBQ next to the pool. Entertainment was very well done. Most nights there was something for everyone. In an average night there were approx ten events to choose from. Coped with our room. Surprisingly we managed to pack everything away. The shower with curtain wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. I did hear neighbors' toilet flushes most of the night. There are lots of places to sit in Sunshine on ship. A lot more seats than our celebrity cruise. I have walked past the pool at 9pm and pool was still open with many people still enjoying themselves. Port talks we're worth going to. Very interesting and entertaining. But for Kona, unfortunately the shopping ambassador came along only talked about the 4 shops that were paid. We went to some of the shops advertised in their daily mailer and some of these shops were a waste of time. The port talks are also on a bit late ie 8am. There are terrible port maps given out on ship. The wifi is expensive and difficult to log out.

Coffee is disappointing
