Had lots of fun, but food not so good

Most of the meals were nicely presented and the service was excellent. However, almost every meal was a disappointment. In the premium restaurant, where we paid an extra $30 per person, the service and presentation were wonderful, but my filet mignon was so tough, I had to ask for another knife which didn't help at all. In retrospect, I should have sent it back. The only good food that I remember was at the pizza counter on the Lido deck. As for the entertainment, we enjoyed the shows to a degree, but the ampification was so loud, we now bring ear plugs on our cruises. I think they're getting out of control with the loudness. There is absolutely no reason to pump it up to louder than jet engines.
Pros: Our cabin, 8448 was great, lots of balcony space; staff was wonderful
Cons: almost all the meals were so-so. Even the upscale was lacking in taste
