having done 23 other cruises this was the worst one,and one of the most expensive, tha cabin was very good,clean and comfortable,the public rooms were nice and good service,but thats were it stops,the 2 bars with entertainment was very poor,very armaturish,the shows well thery were terrible not worth watching,i felt embarased to watch them.moveing on to the food its was like hospital food,poorly cooked very salty,bad menu planning and poor quality of meat.for 6 meals in a row they seved pork neck,diferent ways but they hadent been trained hoew to cook it,it was as tough as old boots.one night i complaned to the chef the meat selection was,pork neck chicken leg,meat loaf,and a sausage stew(which was also on at lunchtime) finding a table was like a allin wrestling compertition,and having bought the drinks package it was so difficult to get served so one had to go to the bar yourself(when you rang the bell on the table nobody came) aslo it is very anoying the amount of selling they do tables set up eveywhere,even in the afternoon over the tanoy of bargains to be had in the shops which were always on the move into lounges etc overall a very poor experience and i woud recomend you to avoid this ship
