In spite of cold, rainy weather we enjoyed the get away. The whole "Anytime Dining" with the more casual dress code was great. I bought the best Spa package ever - just go and use steam room, sauna, hot tub, therapy pool, special showers and heated lounge chairs anytime for as long as you want without having to deal with people trying to sell you things you don't really want but buy because they seem like such nice kids and have to sell to keep their jobs. Our room and all public rooms we used were in good repair and clean. The food was good and staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful. The stateroom was a little smaller than others but adequate. The only down side was the poker table in the casino. Excited at first because there was a live dealer, we soon became disappointed. The rake (amount the house gets off the top) was ridiculously high. The supervisor did not fully understand the rules of the game and was arrogant. All the experienced players quit playing by the third day out. Really too bad. Having a live dealer is such a plus we were really disappointed.

Pros: The dining plan was excellent

Cons: Poker table was VERY poorly run.
