Just returned from this cruise. The ports were excellent as was the serving staff and the shows were very good. However, the food was very disappointing. Things as Mac & Cheese, Oxtail Stew, were on the menu. Beef entries were so tough they went back to the kitchen. Ship has cut the food budget to the bone and needs to redo this.

Had many cases of flu where passengers were restricted to their cabin for 2-5 days. More than 100 were sick while we had been on the ship. Ship did its best to stop the illness. Buffet lines were served to you by a waiter. Passengers were not allowed to touch any of the food or the utensils. However, this didn't start soon enough to stop the contagious spread.

Orient Lines needs to examine their policies. Would not sail this ship again unless food quality is greatly upgraded.
