Limited food options. Not many restaurants on ship. Buffet closed early all of the time. It would close an hour and a half early at night. Food was marginal. Entertainment was horrible. Not much to do on the ship at all. Bring your own stuff to do. I have been on 8 other cruise ships. Never have I been on one like this. Usually there is so much stuff that is incredible going on and it is hard to decide which thing to do. Not this cruise. One show at night that did not have room for everyone. It was like watching high school kids in Las Vegas clothes. No thanks. No dueling pianos, concerts, comedians, or anything like that. Pool did not have water in it most of the time. Large screen by pool but no movie nights. Commercials only. Top deck was wasted space. Mini golf was ruined and not playable. Was only a look out or sitting deck. Should have had activities and sports for guests. There was just nothing to do. Too much time on a boring ship. We would only dock at each city for about 4 hours. Not enough time at port to see the countries. We were rushed and could not go far. Would much rather spend time on land. They cancelled Athens Greece so we did not get to go there at all. They were rude to Americans. It was obvious we were last off the ship for excursions and other things. Would never go on any ship again unless it was American. I was with a group of 15. We all feel the same about each of these items.

Worse cruise ever been on, Not for Americans
