Review Summary

Beautiful ship.  Good food.  We enjoyed "Free Style Cruising".  The restaurants were all very good.  We didn't mind paying a token amount to dine at one of the optional restaurants.


The ports chosen were good with the exception of Cornerbrook.  Not much to do there except go to Walmart.


The only downsides:

                    1. Service in the Venetian was somewhat slow.

                     2. Paying a $15.00 Corkage fee for wine brought onboard was             .

                         insulting.  They go through your luggage like you are a common

                         criminal, all in the name of greed. (That fee is charged even if  

                         the wine is consumed in your stateroom.)  Not very classy...

                     3. The entertainment was subpar.  It was much better on other on

                         other ships we have been on.
