I like the free-style dining experience, especially the free restaurants besides the cafeteria. Guests should be asked if they want to eat by themselves or sit with another couple at a table.The entertainment should be geared for a greater variety of people. The game room and the library are not spacious enough. During our cruise we could not use them - no place. We noticed that there were  quite a few seniors on board. I would suggest not only to offer a "hot" white night but also another type of entertainment e.g. ballroom dancing. We also enjoyed the movies offered, the magician, the strings, the steel drums and the guitar. We would suggest that when people like to sit outside to enjoy nature the volume of the music should be tuned down a bit ( I can be loud but not ear numbing loud). The musical show offered should not be offensive "Madonna" style. You need to consider that there are children in attendance. I would like to be entertained in a nicer way. We also would like to know what the entertainment style will be of the next cruise we might book. A program of what to expect would be appreciated beforehand. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. This was our first cruise experience.

Could use larger library and game room. (Limit times that large families can monopolize those areas and use as a hang-out.
