Our first and last cruise, very disappointing especially the food which aims for quantity rather than quality. Food was very repetitive, poor choice and poor quality, for example Kraft cheese slices sometimes the only cheese on offer!! Staff not friendly, service was always slow. You've already paid your tips so I guess they don't care. In the buffet restaurant although the staff cleared the tables between diners they never wiped them so if you came late you had a dirty table. Evening entertainment was disappointing. Repetitive song and dance shows, the, best entertainment was the comedian who was actually OK. There was constant maintenance work being carried out which meant stairs up to upper decks were often closed off. They offer WiFi which doesn't actually work, so what's the point Excursions were very expensive and we heard people on the one excursion we did saying they had been to the same place 2 days running. Overall a bad experience, don't recommend it and wouldn't return

Cabin Review

Cabin 242
Tiny windows which you can't see out of. Cabins tired looking.
