Evidence of deterioration:
1. Rotten potato, obvious reuse of food from prior night.
2. Multiple items in stateroom did not work.
3. Calls to front desk left on hold for 5 minutes.
4. Captain's welcome aboard no longer includes drinks.
5. Premium food is available but at an $18 per plate surcharge!

Excursions have doubled in price in the last few years. Example--We scheduled ourselves for 1/4 the price.

Dance shows were boring and poorly attended. Example--My wife fell asleep in the middle of a dance number.

Variety shows are poor:

1. Vanilla--rated Y7.
2. Initial show is an infomercial.
3. Annoying to people of other races and religions.

Example--Failure to recognize basic differences between Chinese, Japanese and Thai cultures

Failure to recognize basic differences between Christian denominations and beliefs.

A telling point--no comment cards handed out!!!

A good point--debark now only 15 minutes on your TV.
