The shows were great. Enjoyed the live music in the lounges. it would be nice to have a piano bar with soft listening music. It would also be nice to have the live music in the dizzy lounge play for longer periods of time. The jazz music in the Dizzy lounge on the last night was great but too loud for the small area...it should have been scheduled in a larger area to accommodate the loud sound.
Food was great in the main dining room.
Ice show was great.
Portofino was a very nice experience...quiet and subdued atmosphere was most appreciated.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: not much is a don't miss...the converging rapids was not much to see.
Don't Miss: shopping
Don't Miss: Union Oyster House
Don't Miss: it all was worthwhile.
Pros: ports of call were enjoyable and a wide variety of excursions
Cons: i would prefer to sit at the same table for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can build a rapport with the wait staff and your fellow diners. It also eliminates standing in line to be seated at lunch and dinner.
