My favorite part of the cruise was the evening entertainment in the theater,.

The worst part f the cruise was the "freestyle dining" which was a fancy name for cafeteria dining and the food was awful. If you wanted a decent meal without screaming kids running around you or nearly tripping over kitchen staff's mops, you had to pay to go to one of the restaurants on board.  Having cruised before, I consider this an absolute rip off - as was having to pay $28.00 to have 10 postcards mailed, $7.00 for a liter bottle of water, $21.00 for two cocktails of the day and $13.50 per day gratuities for the staff! 

Improvements need to be made in the way the staff responds to passengers who are breaking the rules. They are hesitant to say anything and if they do say something and are ignored, they do nothing more.

A new rule needs instigating about children using the hot tubs on the Tivoli deck.  The children's pool area has it's own hot tub but there was many a time when adults couldn't get into the tubs on the Tivoli deck for the number of children already in it. 

All in all,   I wold not recommend this cruise to anyone.
