I expected fun programs during day time but couldn't find any...

Reserved 2 times at Teppanyaki and La Cucina but we canceled after we ate there.

Chef needs to clean more often burnt surface in Teppanyaki. We had  bunt taste most time except first 2 cooked meals.

Noodle day at Chin Chin, noodle soup wasn't cooked enough to be soft and I couldn't explain the taste of shrimp pot stickers which was so poor quality.

Hope more fun grograms during day time.

Dance lessons, Sing along, and singers...

But I had a good time overall. 

Ship Quality
I expected changed sheets and pillow cases at least every 2 days. And I saw the janitor used towel to clean the toilet. Disgusting
