We are not gourmet eaters but the food on this cruise was the worst my wife and I have ever had on any cruise and we are experienced cruisers. With the exception of one lunch and one dinner in the dining room, we ate our meals in the Ocean View Cafe. Meals in the dining room were no better than the Cafe. Meats at the carving station were dried out and tough from sitting under the heat lamp. Mashed potatoes were lumpy and baked potatoes were cold inside. The desserts tasted of shortening and were repetitive and breakfast pastries were what you could buy at Costco. They ran out of lemonade by the third day and out of Sweet & Low midway thru the cruise. The entertainment, both ship and outside entertainers, was excellent. The onboard naturalist was excellent and the cruise director was the best we've ever had. Although the ship and itinerary were fine, the sub-standard quality of the food ruined this cruise.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 2

Cabin layout was fine with plenty of storage. Sufficient electrical outlets by desk. Bathroom layout fine with sufficient storage.
