most of the entertainment was lousy . the food was the same most of the whole trip except for the carving table . the breakfast was pretty much the same every day and stingy with some of the breakfast items such as your bacon . the main table in the fancy restaurant was very small portions .when saying the food was the same . I mean that in the fancy restaurant they had a flat iron steak that looked boiled first was on the buffet the next night. the picture show you set out side which was ok until it rained and you had to set outside to watch it and get wet. we know we had go through the safety for the ship and what to do . but when you turned everyone loose you couldn't get to your room for ever do to everyone fighting to get to an elevator . then we was told that our luggage would be at our room by the time the safety was over . but we didn't get it until 8:00 pm that night and couldn't get any thing to eat until almost 8:30 or later that night . the accommodation's , the room was very small and the bed that my son Gale Hardwick had to sleep on came down out of the ceiling and he had to climb up down little steps that hurt his feet to do. and he almost fill off of twice in the middle of the night when he had to go to the bathroom . the bed he slept on was like sleeping on a brick and was over the top of our bed that we slept on and had to stay bent over just to get out on one side of it which was bad for our backs. now when we went into ports you couldn't get on the beach due to all the shops and the reefs unless you paid to on a tour to get on one. now we did go on a tour in Jamaica called the top 10 tour and that was the trashiest tour that we have ever been on people laying on cardboard wholes in the streets hope we wouldn't fall through . the first stop was at a church so that we could take pictures . but as soon as you got of the bus you was hit up by someone wanting to sell you something and not just souvenirs they wanted to sell you now this was on church grounds which is just wrong. we seen expensive houses and hotels but no top 10 sites yet we stopped at a souvenir huts where the people was pushy and grabby and they scared my wife so we all went back to the bus as soon as possible have you yet heard of any top 10 sites yet. no you haven't. then we went to a much better mall area to do more shopping then we lift there to head back to the ship. on the way we was told if you get ready you might be able to get a picture of the white witch's house that you could hardly see from the road then we went back to the ship. yet no top 10 sites. All in all the cruise was and the tour was mighty dis appointing. signed BILLY
