“More staff than diners!”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

And service was still lousy! Genuinely had long waits to get served and food to be delivered.

The staff seemed more content to huddle together at the bar than serve customers.

2 nights I was there, same both times. Both times they did not have the correct change.

Food was OK.

“Great location, but poor service and average quality”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

The location cannot be beaten, on board this old cruise liner. Terrace is nice enough, with sunloungers but also with normal tables. But unfortunately, it's all down hill from there...

Service is very slow; the first twenty minutes we were wondering "are they all on their cigarette break?" because we didn't see any staff at all. Aftering ordering food and drinks, it took another fifteen minutes before the drinks were finally brought to our table. Food was so-so, nothing noteworthy and not really cheap as well. Coffee and tea after dinner were only lukewarm, and also took ages to be delivered to us.

Finally, we walked to the counter to pay, because after asking for the check, the staff disappeared again.

Free tip for a sunny day: bring your own drinks, have a seat in one of the sunloungers, relax for half an hour without being bothered by the staff, and then walk through the other public areas of the ship.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

The food was absolutely wonderful and the view stunning. The staff wasn't really friendly, but the food made up all of that.
