  • Sail Date: Feb 2020
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

Whoever designed these ships most have been on some drugs. When you hold all your games and talks in the Atrium, which has future cruises, guest services and and tours, you are asking for trouble. You have to yell at the person you are talking to. For a show in the Atrium, they put out folding chairs, pay all that money to sit in a folding chair. They have a very nice theater which is underused. Why not show a movie on a sea day.

Food is now right bad. No taste, weird things and slow service, even if they remember who got what. We had 8 of us and they either forgot things or gave them to the wrong people. The paid restaurants were not much better, Japanese was good and Ocean Blue, might have been the best restaurant I have ever been in while on a cruise. Service Fantastic, food better then any other place on the ship.

Footloose was great, the other shows not very good. Worst comedians that I have ever seen with the female comedian disgusting.

Nice things, the cabin, although it was dirty when we arrived, the bathroom great. The crew very nice.

When it takes an hour to board and close to two hours to get off there is something wrong. Our tour of LA was cut short. The tour was suppose to leave at 9 and we left at 11:15. Come on if you had a tour let us off first.

Last time for this line. Just the little things that they make you pay for. Try another cruise line, if you want service and better food.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Very good, but we had to ask for it to be cleaned when we got on. Cleaning was average at best.
