Average wait for "Anytime Dining" was 25 minutes.  This while tables were empty in traditional dining area.  Caused us to miss scheduled events.  Piano bar was particularly "Adult" at all times even though in the daily paper it was described as "for all ages."  Even show with Juggler had comments that were "adult" rather than family friendly.  No band on board.  No served beverages in buffet area.  Personnel extremely friendly and efficient. Trip ended with three sea days and not much was happening on the ship.  This was the second half of a B2B cruise and much needs to be done to smooth the transition for passengers.  Other lines do a much better job on that.  Adequate best describes the trip.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin, bathroom and balcony very spacious. Telephone needs to be relocated next to bed. Light controls need to be explained. Safe usage is controlled by credit card or room card thus only one person has access. Old system where a combination was choses was superior since either person could have access to the safe.
