Our cruise started off with champgne and a greeting from our cabin steward. He went over everything we needed to know about our suite and the services he will be providing and other then that we had limited interaction with him.

As for the food, the main dining room was good, the specialty restaurant we had dinner in one night was good, but the buffet was not that good. It did not have a good variety and a lot of the times there were empty bowls of food with no backup in sight. The food seemed geared for the European traveler and not the American traveler.

Since we were upgraded to a suite, we have no complaints about our stateroom.

Plenty of things to do and something for everyone.

Even though we booked a couple of excursions through the cruise line, we found that you can get a better price booking it online direct from the tour provider. We also found that you can bargain with the tour operators once you are in port,

Overall we had a good time, but might look at another cruise line next time.
