This is a smaller, older ship that needs some cosmetic upkeep. The restaurant staff and food was very good. One suggestion is providing a \"sampler\" for their desserts, thus giving a bite-size taste of everything. There was lack of interesting things to do during the \"at sea\" days. The dance and singing group was good, but didn't need to see them for every performance. Variety in their shows is needed and only having a 10:30 p.m. show on two of the five days is inconsiderate of those who are naturally early risers.
