The food was good quality, the music was great, but the windows were very tinted. We had a window seat especially to see the views, but this was restricted by the dark colour of them.

Service: 4 of 6 courses were delivered totally wrong and when explained to waitress she could not understand. My entree was meant to be ravioli but received warm salad salad. My main was meant to be duck and I got chicken. Due to lack of understanding from waitress none was corrected and I ended up eating incorrect meals. Same also happened to my wife. Have cruised with u before both in Australia and Fiji and really enjoyed but this has ruined that fond memories I had previously. Very poor
Product: Total wrong meals delivered from what was ordered and not corrected

We had a wonderful experience even though it was a rainy and cloudy evening. The service was amazing and the staff was exceptional. Our food was excellent and we had an enjoyable night. W were impressed at how tasty the food was and everything was served hot. We knew there was a time limit but we never felt rushed at all. The music was a nice touch.

We would absolutely recommend this.
