I never had anything to compare my last two cruises(NCL) with until now. With booze pkg. and tips included, four of us were on our way. As usual, the empoyees were very friendly and anxious to please. We checked in quickly and headed to the pool area for a drink and to chill. An hour or so later up yo the room to unpack luggage . We had 6 oclock set dining but decided on the buffet.Not very impressive at all. The wife got a slice of roast beef and asked me to find her a steak knife. I found one but it didn't help...wouldn't cut through it. And the overall selection of food wan't very good. We ate at the fixed restauant the rest of the week which was ok. The wait staff was great and very attentive and couldn't have asked for better. OK...you probably have figured out by now I like to eat and drink LOL. Very surprised they have nothing all week around the pool area unless you want hot dogs and hamburgers..and grumpy people cooking them. I heard more than a few complaints. I didn't know this was a bargain cruise. The premium drink pkg is worth every penny. I just watched the bartenders pouring what I asked for. Martini Bar very good and drink pkg comes in handy cause they use mostly all top shelf. The shows were also very good and we caught them all. Our room was near the front hence perhaps more rocking than I experienced on the bigger ships. We met very nice people at our dinner table and had a good time overall. Like I said, the wait staff went above and beyond as if their jobs depended on it. Maybe the chef and F&B director could take a lesson.

More miss than hit
