Prior to boarding the Marina for our January jaunt up the western coast of South America and through the Panama Canal, I read many reviews here that had me slightly concerned.
People complained that the portions were small in the specialty restaurants and that the food had deteriorated since our last trip three years ago. They complained about service in the main dining room (which I had experienced the last trip) that the buffet wasn't self serve and that portions weren't as large as when they go to Denny's. There were also a surprisingly number of complaint that the entertainment wasn't what it was on other lines.
There were a lot of complaints from people - who sounded - like they lamented that this wasn't a Carnival Cruise.
