Employees went out of their way to be helpful and friendly.  This was some of the best customer service we've ever experienced.


Shore excursions were O.K., but did not always stay on schedule.  One example was scheduled for 4 hours, but took 5 1/2 to complete. 


Our veranda stateroom was clean, but needed refurbishment.  Worst example was the sofa which had significant stains from a lot of prior use.  The cabin attendants responded and within 2 days made the needed corrections.

Except for the Pinnacle, food was quite average. Desserts in particular were well presented but bland.

Pappas was excellent. Also, the comedian was exceptional. Other than that, all others were pretty average.
