There were plenty of positives about this trip. The tours and tour guides were excellent. The onboard cruise director was fun, enthusiastic and give us good information about up coming ports. We had a deluxe balcony suite. It was a little small but very nicely decorated. The bedding was soft and having a king bed on a ship is always a plus. The bathroom was nice size. Heated flood and heated towel rack made for enjoyable mornings after a wake up shower. The two different entertains that came on board were outstanding. The 70's party music was a lot of fun and had great participation. The bar service was OK, but not as good as we have had on other Uniworld cruises. The food was good and the selection was nice. The service for the buffet at breakfast and lunch was very good. The only real negative from the trip was the dinner service in the dinning room. It was bad every night. We sat in different sections and the results were the same POOR. It was a bad combination of orders not being delivered, dirty dishes left in front of someone for 15-20 minutes, forgetting to bring something that was ordered. Another disturbing factor is that the ship was not even 100% full. This is just not like Uniworld, not sure what the issue was but I am sure they will correct it.
