I expected more of the entertainment. Bingo at 20.00 dollars a card, was outrageous for a game that was over in 5 minutes. The prizes given for most of the activities was very"stingy" ex. Free ice cream to the children - what about a huge sundee that would make them Feel like they actually won something. Bottles of champagne given for most prizes ........ What about prize credits to be used on the ship, $100.00 credit to the bar or gift shops. Bingo should be playing several rounds with several winners.
The process for leaving the ship was done in an efficient manor, was very pleased with this.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The breakfast dining, service in the Celebration room was long and the food was disappointing. The Jubilee dining had excellent service but the food was disappointing (panko shrimp, the pasta was not cooked through, the fish was dry). The desserts were excellent.

I had heard so many positive things about cruise entertainment,but was not impressed with this ships options for evening entertainment. The poolside entertainment was fun to watch.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Housekeeping staff, Lotoyo was excellent and Luka in the dining room was awesome. Pleas be sure they are recognized for their amazing service. Cons: Aliz our bar waitress had selective English understanding.... She could take our order fine but when we told her the drinks were very very weak and would like to have the drinks remade, she said she did not understand. REALLY, at $8.00 a drink.
