Group chose this cruise for the Superbowl. On the positive side, the ship is beautiful and the Burn the Floor show was outstanding. Also, the magician and comedian were great The breakfast and lunch at the buffet were very good, as was the food in the Bistro. THe show Six was ok, but not our favorite. Big negative was having to make reservations for the shows, the specialty restaurants and even the tenders going to and from shore. The dinner the fist night in the Manhattan room was very bad. Could not eat the onion soup as it was too salty and the scallops were mushy. We paid to eat at Cagney's steak house and my filet mignon was a dry piece of very thin steak. The staff was very professional and efficient, although they did not take time to learn your names. The staff in the Bistro French restaurant was the best on the ship.

Beautiful ship with bad food. Had to make reservations for everything.
