We really enjoyed our cruise. 


The Bad Stuff:


Would have rated very good had we not received the runaround the first night when we went to the dining room even though we had chosen the 6:00 PM dinner seating.  It seems that because we booked our cruise only a 42 days earlier we were not assigned a table.  After waiting 15 minutes, we were shuttled up to the other deck that shares the main dining room.  After walking back and forth being led by a cruise member we were finally seated at 6:45 PM after arriving at the dining room at 5:45 PM for our requested and confirmed 6:00 PM dinner seating. Not the way to start the cruise. Also, it would seem to me that the toilets should flush every time in the stateroom.  Had to complain twice to get the toilet working properly on two evening occasions.


The Good Stuff:


Food was very good, the cabin attendant was great and the entertainment was very good.  All in all, not a bad 4 days.


It is just the little things that kept me from rating this cruise very good.
