Oceania’s entertainment program needs a lot of improvement. The guest magician and the violinist were pretty good. The singers and dancers are not very good but the band was excellent especially the saxophonist. It would have been nice to see a flamenco dancer when we were in Cadiz as Sevilla is known for their flamenco dancers.
