Gregory123...while I understand that any two individuals can experience the same things and have differing opinions, I cannot let this diatribe go unanswered, given that some people actually read these and make decisions based on reviews such as yours. This is not meant to be argumentative...only meant to give another perspective to your rant.

My wife and I are in our 60s and just completed an 11 day cruise on the Sunshine with the same staff, same dining, same entertainment and, of course, on the same ship. Yes, the ship is a bit old and there is only so much you can do to renovate her, but the upgrades were fantastic.

As for the entertainment, I am not a big fan of production shows on cruises, but I did attended several on the Sunshine and was pleasantly surprised at the talent and the showmanship. Some were actually quite good. I did not find the "male dances" to be exhibiting "homosexual overtones". The Swamp Thing band was the best I have heard in a long time. The "idiot" DJ was, in our opinion, one of the best...he handled all kinds of music...not just the hip-hop crap we are usually treated to on cruises.

The Serenity area is larger on the Sunshine than ANY OTHER SHIP I have ever been on.

As for the dining...pick a time to dine (early or late seating) if you don't want to wait for a table. The anytime dining implies you can go to dinner anytime you want...it does not imply you will have a reserved table waiting for you....they have to fit you in and they are seating and feeding thousands of people (please, get over yourself).

Overall, I found the Sunshine, her staff, her crew, and the entertainment to be a great ship. We would sail with them again, anytime.
