Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We chose this cruise for just one reason, the itinerary. The ship in general is very mediocre. The food in the main dining room, and buffet were on par with my company's cafeteria. The only difference was that this buffet had a few more choices. The hamburgers were precooked, tasteless and dry. You could get a better one at Burger King. On other ships we have cruised on we were tired of lobster by about the third day. We were on this ship for 11 days and could not buy a lobster in even the specialty restaurants.

The cabin was nice, but we had to pay a substantial upgrade to get a room similar to what was standard on other ships we have sailed on.

On a positive note the entertainment was good, and the entire staff was polite at all times.
