First off I’ve been on 18 past cruises several lines .. No beginner here! Went aboard open minded , street fights while in line to board. 6 hour delay in ship taking pasangers. Ok this is life. Conditions change in ports. Ok .. but. Finally boarding elderly/ handicapped folks got no expedited assistance from port folks. Zip nada wait in line sucker. Nothing ! Felt like a rock concert. Was waiting for the barfing kids. After finally getting our cabin relaxed a bit called room service a few times. Never in the entire ten days did room service pick up the phone. Wow! After while of adjustment it’s was pleasant and we were open minded and wanted to relax. The theater had good shows including tenors good singers . But surprisingly. Nothing past 83o to 9. Not late comedy. Just felt as if they were on an entertainment budget. Kinda boreing Ok. Dineing room was ok. It’s was disturbing to find out that there would be no mixed guest tables as every cruise I’ve been on had. It’s fun to meet all walks of life we looked forward to the mixed seating. Ok that was a disapointment. The ships older. Ok pools really deep and you better be tall …buffets never had seating… ok we ate in pool area 90 percent of the trip. Buffet was as expected. Moderately good though rarely was fruit sweet or in season. We wanted and had planed on premium dining Was looking forward to this. But so many other pasangers said over and over again. Steaks were grizzle’s cuts and the felts it just wasn’t a good meal. Never did we experience a single disappointment with the servers performance they were awesome !! Felt as if the ships endless surcharges were to much nickel and dimming us. The charred for water bottles wen goin on excursions No hand towels for face upon return. (Ha I expected a charge lol) Shore excursions were fine , well chosen. Especially Cabo San Lucas Overall its was just ok !,,,, but I’ve had much better service and food. Just a drag to get blah food with stellar servants Would I go again. Nope. Azamara or celebrity did so much more ..and treated us very good Pass on this trip and line they are poor quality
