Mostly a very nice cruise. There were a few moments when the beauty waned regarding service at the Champagne Bar, quality of beef served in the dining room and Guest Services.
The Bar was short staffed, the beef had a strange texture and Guest staff tried to blow off a problem blaming BJ's Travel (still in dispute).
The dining room food (except the beef) was exceptional. The Promenade had nice food and drink venues. Filling the gaps between our three meals for the day.
Unfortunately, it seems that cruises (not just this one), have turned in to one big sales venue. Not everyone goes on a cruise to buy "duty free" goods. Some (like me) go for the destinations and the joy of sailing.
I would still recommend this cruise to anyone who would like to visit specific destinations.
