3 out of 5
final extravaganza was excellent
other nights weren't memorable
bingo ie 10 for 3 cards for one game was outlandishly high
I wish there would have been 'bridge' ie cards

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
went above and beyond
liked the 'ask me' people
most people could answer questions about other areas
I liked that they acknowledged staff in all areas ie housekeeping, kitchen
just include the maitre 'd in the manadatory tipping not separate
