The staff were very friendly! Our cruise was not fully booked, so I liked having a little extra space. The DJ music was really appropriate.

Disappointing !

Overall disappointing ! Although the food selection was good, it was just warm, not quite to the right temperature. Service was adequate, no more. As dinner winded down, the music became so loud, that we, as others, left for the deck. The weather was awesome, which was the saving grace. I would not recommend overall.

Wish we had known what type music was to be played - it was so loud we couldn’t get away unless we were on the top level. If it had rained and we couldn’t have stayed up top, it would have been miserable!

I put a 20$ note for a 7,5$ bill for my beer, no change brought back. Guess almost 200% tip is way too much. Otherwise the cruise and food marvelous
