I would have to agree with all of the people that said that food was poor and the service mediocre. This was our first cruise and we were pretty surprised at the quality and appearance of the 'buffet'. It was very reminiscent of a hospital cafeteria. There was absolutely no presentation and the food was generally cold and terribly presented. The quality was pretty bad too - I read one review where the person likened it to Denny's and that is EXACTLY correct. It's like eating at Denny's for every meal. The 2 dining rooms were the same in terms of food quality. Nothing tasted right and it was all like cheapo fish sticks and Sara Lee cake. Really bad. Even the baked potatoes were hard and dry. We didn`t even try the specialty restaurants - who wants to pay even more for the same poor quality food out of the same kitchen. I did not go on the cruise for the food - but when you`re on the boat and you are pretty much committed to eating 3 meals a day there - it`s not a beautiful thing. I would not recommend this cruise line to anyone unless they couldn't afford to go on any other vacation AT ALL. The crew were generally friendly and they do come around alot offering to bring you drinks - which are fairly expensive and have 15% added to the total! We had an inside stateroom which was fine and was cleaned twice per day. No complaints there. The Bahamas are beautiful by the way :)
