Review Summary

I enjoyed the cruise. I thought almost all of the ship's personnel tried to make my time on board enjoyable. LOVED the NO HIGH PRESSURE SALES or PICTURES ! Food was GREAT ! Food service was OUTSTANDING !! Entertainment was too "hip" - most on ship were retired or at that age - entertainment should be for majority - shows were too weird ! The best show was the juggler (entertaining for all ages). The best musicians were in the lounges, not the show rooms.

EVERYTHING was GREAT - - - EXCEPT - - - I asked for a room without an obscured view when I boarded the ship, was told they would check when all were on board - - - NEVER HEARD ANYTHING !! DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU WILL DO !!

Ship Tip

Avoid the alcohol and gambling and all the "extra" charges and have a good time.
