We loved this cruise.  Food was great, room was great, excursions were great.  But, entertainment on board was fairly lousy.  For those who wanted something other than just a place to eat, there was a jazz club, a piano bar, a comedy club, and a karaoke bar.  None of them were great.  The music in the piano bar and jazz club was mediocre at best.  The comedy talent was not very talented.  And the karaoke bar reminded us of a small town strip club (very tacky design, with actual beds in certain parts of the seating area).  These onboard activities are all great in theory but, in our opinion, were executed poorly.  Also, some of the bartenders in some of the bars were not the friendliest people.  We talked to some people on board who loved all of this stuff, but we definitely didn't.

Loved the balcony, especially when coming into or leaving a port.


Don't forget about the "secret" sundeck on the 18th floor. Chairs/tables on all other floors fill up VERY fast when the boat is at sea.
