Didn’t do many activities but there was plenty to keep from being bored

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Entertainment, especially dancers and singers were excellent - we didn’t go to all the other shows as not keen on magicians or comedians

Children's Programs

No children with us!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Can’t complain about any of the staff - they were all very polite and friendly and did their jobs efficiently.k

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
It was a beautiful ship though I think maybe too many speciality restaurants.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Bain was kept well - only complaint would be on the deck staff would enter the deck for a break and the door was slammed constantly at all hours of the day/night. I did mention it to guest relations but it would be a tricky problem to solve.
