Cruise overall was nice.  Smaller ship and is showing it's age.  Very clean and food was good.  Not a lot to do on ship.  Effy shop very disappointing.  Entered a drawing for Jewelry and when it was time to pick the winner there were only 5 people there and the Manager said he could not give anything away as not enough people.  We complained and he then gave a large animal key chain as a gift.  Not what was written in the newsletter or on their entry form.  Very little shopping on ship.  Theater was old but clean.  Shows were ok, performers very good, but same format with each show.  Shopping expert Elizabeth was wonderful, very informative and helpful.  Will not be taking this ship again.

Cabin was very clean but old. Our steward was great! Furnishings old, no seating area at all. Had to sit on our beds all week. Did not like the "upper bunk" structure as it cut your sleeping space.
