Sail Date: Aug 2022
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Pros: Nice balcony room, comfortable bed, excellent excursions, the lady playing violin was really great and entertaining, too.

Cons:

1) Food. Simply awful and small portions. Some examples: The "welcome aboard" lunch was noodles and hamburger. Reminded me of school lunch - not a good start to an expensive cruise. My wife's main course at the "gala dinner" was sole (fish). Literally 3" long by 1" wide. The "King Prawn" appetizer was one (1) medium shrimp, not "prawn." The "satay" chicken skewers had no spice to them whatsoever - I salted them to give them flavor of SOME kind. My veal main course was literally six (6) bites - I know because I cut it up first just to see. The tiny portions were typical of every "main course" meal in the dining room. Every soup was "consomme" or similar -- basically colored water with some bits of onion floating in it. The cookies in the lounge were seriously "Chips Ahoy." This is the first cruise I've ever lost weight on. Lest you think I'm unreasonable here, we were on a Viking river cruise on the Rhine and Danube in 2015 and the food aboard that ship was excellent.
