I and my husband are in our late 50's and took our 33yr son & his fiancee on this cruise with us. The nightly entertainment unfortunately kept all four of us in our staterooms the majority of the cruise because it appeared to be geared only to the much older individuals on the cruise...very disappointing! If you weren't a fan of Bingo and Karaoke, you were left alone for entertainment. The same songs (not the top 100 either!) were played over and over every night in the Spinnaker lounge (the one place that appealed to us) so much so, that we stopped going. This cruise would have been perfect except for the ship's entertainment. The only two great items of entertainment for us were, the Quest (scavenger hunt) game and the comedian (Greg Gleason). The staff, cleaniness of the ship, food and service were all impeccable! This would not be a good cruise for you If you are under the age of 45 and want to have "real" fun on the ship.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The main dining room and buffet were good...however, the speciality restaurants were the best.
