As a vegan I could not eat the buffet. I had no problem ordering what I could eat and it was quite reasonable.

My husband spent almost two hours trying to connect and was on the phone the whole time with their IT Dept. it never worked for him. I was able to connect no problem. Bottom line, you may want to consider elsewhere.
