Quite disappointing! This was a Christmas and New Year cruise, supposed to have better food and onboard activities. Food was terrible and onboard activities boring. Fellow passengers were not very nice, either. Our neighbors were noisy after mid-night. Kids running around and shouting all the time. Weather was not nice; never saw a sunrise or sunset in 15 days; always overcast! Variaty is narrow, particularly in the lunch buffet. Dinner is largely run-of-the-mill quality, tasteless and lack of imagination. Lobster was cooked to rocky hard! Ordered NY steak raw 3 times and got none done right. The 5th steak came in right! Finally. Another thing that really doesn't make sense is they never cook rice properly. Usually the rice was only half cooked! The only good part of the food is desert. Fair only. Toilet flush went out of order more than 5 times. Once it lasted for more than 4 hours! Maid was nice though. Miserable! We had 9 days at sea, over half of the time was idle, with only Bingo games or old movies available. Guest performers were good, though.
