Sail Date: Sep 2011
Cabin:

This was the worst cruise we ever experienced,4 persons.Same menu daily,quality very poor with cafeteria buffet serving hot dogs, burgers,frozen french fries for dinner.The ship has a lot of smoking,disregarding the right of nonsmokers.Reception desk is incompetent and unaccomodating.Overall the cruise ship did not care much about the welfare of passengers.  Entertainment  was very poor with shows averaging 30 minutes or less in the theater.The crew reporting to the cruise director were quite annoying and overall uncaring.

The pillows in the stateroom were very uncomfortable,filled with straw.

Dancing was very poor because musicians were taking extensive breaks every hour.Drinks overall were very expensive,averaging 11 to 14 dollars each.
