This cruise was a gift to myself to celebrate retiring from a very tedious 4 year volunteer position.
As usual the services & amenities were excellent. My one complaint concerned the actions of our table server at the last night's dinner. He (Topu/Topo/Puto/??) pressured the last 6 of us still seated to consider extra tipping to him for the time & effort he put in to providing his good service & entertainment and to help his family back home. I personally saw 2 of the ladies each give him a $10 bill. To me this is extortion and put us all in a very uncomfortable and embarrassing situation. I refuse to give tips under duress.

I didn't mind not having an ocean view on this short cruise.
Dining room breakfast is the best as I tend to over indulge at Tiffanys breakfast buffet.
