Review summary

With the exception of the Diamond Princess Players and a few 'professional' acts - too many acts were like 3rd rate AMATEUR HOUR - have seen better when I was a 12 years old in camp!  And - the Cruise Director was himself just a complete mistake!  Even the Wheelhouse singer and musician were incompetent, and the lounge singer/guitarist in both the Wheelhouse and the Pizzeria were horrible! As to our Jr. Suite - it CREAKED AND CRACKED ALL NIGHT LONG - for 6 nights - even through they could have moved us on the 5th night, but DID NOT!!!  Yeah, they tried to stop the squeaks, but could NOT.  

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
While most ALL passengers were either American, Australian, Canadians or otherwise Caucasian, the food selections were mainly Asian - and even the Asians on the ship - lived mostly in San francisco area! NOT PLEASED. To be fair - Dining Staff was EXCELLENT!

Entertainment

1 out of 5
Mainly 3rd rate Amateur Hour stuff!. And what a waste of a Cruise Director - like he 'phoned it in'.
