Sail Date: May 2022
Cabin: Balcony

Someone in corporate decided to cut back on the food quality & menu options. The Dining Room menu was changed and striped of the better options, i.e., steak, sea bass., etc., and replaced with pasta & salmon. Dining Room was poor, and we could not hack it even three times, of our 33 days on the ship - all were flops and had to be sent back or a changed order. BOTH specially dinning, steak & Italian were flops. What is so hard about cooking pasta? Main Buffet was similar to the mall food court - cheap & quickly cooked. Not only was the quality of the food poor, but the preparation was not what is be expected on a cruise ship - overcooked, side dishes mushy or raw.

Entertainment on the ship was average to poor. Too many over & over boring "comedy" and others.

Crew tried hard, but many appeared to be "green" and not well managed.

Cabin Review


Actually, our balcony cabin was OK for a small, older ship.
