The stateroom was gorgeous, just like on the photos.  The ship was a nice size, kind of intimate.  On the entire cruise, though, we never had a proper breakfast or lunch.  These were always buffets!  Disappointing.  The dinner service was not relaxed and the servers seemed to be rushed.  We had to repeatedly ask for a second glass of wine at every dinner, instead of the server anticipating our request.  The front desk help seemed a little imposed upon when we addressed them.  Often their answer was "that is not my area to address", instead of taking care of the customer with grace.  The nightly musician was stuck in the past!!  He didn't have one modern song.  It was like bad wedding music.  The excursions were really well organized and we went to lovely places.  The sundeck was nice, but there also should have been beverage service up there, rather than having to walk downstairs to get something.
