Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
mini bar fridge did not fit in area properly. one of the doors for clothes fell off.. room was clean.
Service and Staff
Our room steward was wonderful! we did order a frozen drink on the pool deck\, it was not very frozen and did not taste good\, but trying to get something in its place was like pulling teeth\, finally did but it should not have been that hard.
Comedian was great El Gaucho and 70's night was a lot of fun\, (Bolero)but Signed\, Sealed\, Delivered seemed high schoolish. Rock wall\, why only one try\, I can see if it was a lot of people lined up for it\, but everytime we went by very few to no one was there\, but our \"seapass\" had been punched so no go. allow your people some leeway on that policy.
Children's Programs
2 16 year olds stayed busy the whole time and were worn out by end of trip. Very nice young Philippine lady (sorry I do not have her name) won their hearts.
