Cabin: Balcony Premium

Selected this cruise based on itinerary and low price point. Absolutely disgusting food. Crew is pathetic and service was rude or non existent from nearly all staff. Many, many, many unhappy passengers. Lacked fresh produce, food was tasteless and extremely limited choices. We actually lost weight on this cruise it was soooooo bad. Do not book this ship unless it is your first cruise and it’s all your budget will allow. Very disappointing on so many levels. Some entertainment was ok but overall not impressed. Seems most passengers, including us, had the free drink package which was a nice plus and helped make it mildly tolerable. But, we have never been so anxious to disembark. Another big problem was the constant barrage of efforts in person and by public address system in 5 languages to CONSTANTLY try to sell goods and services. Incredibly obnoxious. They obviously needed to do this because their cruise fares are so low.
