My eighth and worst cruise yet. Getting off the Breakaway last May I was so excited to cruise this itinerary.
Let’s start, since when did we start adding lines for bar service? Everything is a line; over an hour of standing in lines to get a beverage on the pool deck is not relaxing. The worst part is watching the General Manager of the ship watch everyone waiting in an hour-plus line, laughing with his officer.
Free Style Dining? No reservations for any restaurants, and hour-plus waits for sit-down casual dining every night. Not to mention the cut corners, food is by far horrible now. Cafeteria food might be better. Replaced items like Fillet Mignon in Teppanyaki with Sirloin and Strip, food in Cagney’s was ice cold, and side portions got dramatically smaller and blander. Paid the upcharge for the Lobster only to get a dry burnt shriveled piece.
The cabins are weird but I can get over that if the ship was good. If you were traveling with friends or strangers the see through bathrooms would-be a privacy concern
