This ship has 15 decks and is a pretty good size ship.
They have a dining room at the aft of the ship, which takes up two decks. Just one big dining room. The buffet is up on deck 11, at the back of the vessel.
They also have a place on deck 5 called Café Promenade, where free food is offered. Well, in 2010.
