This was the most disappointing cruise we have ever been on.  The entertainment was NOT family friendlly.  We had to take our grandchildren out of the nightly entertainment due to the "scantly" dressed dancers.  Not appropriate for families. We have always looked forward to the nightly entertainment on the cruises, and were appalled that this would be allowed on a family ship.

The dinning room experiences were about the same.  One night it took us over an hour and a half to be served our meal.  For the dessert alone, we had to wait 30 minutes for the waiter to come back and take our order.

"The Grill" was delicious, but seemed to be a little disoraganized.  The fries were exceptional!

The Almond Napoleon dessert was the best thing about the trip.  AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
