We liked that almost all passengers were active 60 something\, and there were not a lot of children running around. It was a smooth sailing; the Captain kept us informed and did his best to steer us around instead of going head-on into bad weather. The cabin crew and room service people were friendly and efficient. The spa was good but too pricy; attendants must not try to make patrons feel like they need to compete with their 30 something. The gym was nice\, but exercise should not be by youngsters showing off. Instead of aggressive yoga\, a mild yoga and tai chi midmorning would have been better. Arts and crafts were like for a convalescent home. Scrap the dance contest or make it age appropriate. The BB King band was good\, but the room too small. It would be great to have a writing group in the library. Most of the crew was friendly and efficient; however\, the medical staff could have been more helpful and appointments more than for during a couple of hours a day. I got sick on the ship and reported it to the nurse and was not offered to see a doctor; we are now on antibiotics.
