Old shoddy ship negatively impacted our experience.

Ship is old and in dire need of rehab.  Carpets and upholstery were stained ragged and just plain dirty looking. Heavy handed use of disinfectant sprays scented the air but I failed to see actual cleaning performed.  Dining room chairs need legs tightened and to be reupholstered.  I felt like I was sitting in a wobbly hole every evening at dinner. The Aqua Spa for breakfast and lunch was fantastic.   It served light meals that hit the spot.  On-board entertainment was poor.  Singers had no breath control and poor enunciation. I've seen better costumes and stage scenery in high school productions.  We did have a Hawaiian crafts person June who was excellent and very entertaining.  Chelsea was very knowledgable and a great speaker. Astronomy lecturer was monotone and boring. Dining room and shore excursion staff were very polite and had great customer service skills but were extremely disorganized. Almost seemed like they were trainees.   Food quality was good, portion size small, which I appreciated, but menu selection especially for light meals was non-existent.  You wanted to eat light? One selection only. We experienced rough seas but the captain chose not to use the ship stabilizers. He finally put them out when we were in  a gale with 25-27 foot waves. Drinks were over priced: 1 small martini $11. The cruise director and his staff did a poor job arranging activities especially considering we had 8 sea days! We cruise a great deal and have been told we had to go on Celebrity as it was the best!  I was disappointed and will not cruise with Celebrity again.
