Nightly entertainment excellent. More choices of music and musicians so they do not play the same think over and over

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The Stuart for our cabin did a great job. Magenta restaurant had a great wit staff, but Joe Fernandes did an excellent job on taking care of us at dinner time. Personally I prefer fix dinner time, so you can have the same waiter throughout the trip.
