Very expensive

Ship was nice and ports were nice.  The entertainment was excellent.  We had  rough days at sea in the Pacific so if you get sea sick that would be a problem. The reason I rated as good was because the cost for the cruise was high and when we got on ship we seemed to be price gauged everywhere we looked.  Expensive drinks, expensive gaming.  There could of been more food variety and change of menus and if a dining room is complimentary don't have things on the menu that you have to pay extra for.  There should of been more prime options such as a crab leg night or lobster night with no extra charge.  I also thought the service could of been better.  There are times we waited and even did not receive things we requested and some staff were not knowledgeable about things.  I don't know if it was because it was the end of the season and were people tired or crabby?  This was not everyone, we had several that were also very good thank god that made up for that.
