Review summary

VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE NUMBER OF BROKEN WASHING AND DRYING MACHINES WHICH WERE SUPPOSEDLY FREE.   BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT IS THE SHRUGGED SHOULDERS OF THE FRONT DESK STAFF ABOUT GETTING THEM REPAIRED.  SEVERAL PEOPLE WENT THERE AND CAME BACK SWEARING.   PEOPLE ARE JUST NOT RESPONSIVE.

 

FOOD WAS FAIR, NOT EXCELLENT OR EXCEPTIONAL.   MAIN COURSES LACKED FLAVOR, BLAND MIGHT BE A GOOD WORD.  DESSERTS AND APPETIZERS WERE MUCH BETTER

 

CABIN STAFF EXCELLENT.   THE BEST.

 

ENTERTAINMENT OVERALL WAS GOOD.   THE SHIP CAST WAS EXCELLENT.   SOME OF THE ONE NIGHTERS WERE,  EHH?  HANGERS ON EXTENDING THEIR CAREERS.

COMMENTED ABOUT THE BATHTUB. WAS VERY DIFFICULT FOR MY WIFE TO GET IN AND OUT OF, AND NOT EASY FOR ME EITHER.

Ship tip

NICE SIZE BOAT NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE AND EASY TO GET AROUND. AND TO MEET PEOPLE. DINING HOURS WERE NOT A CATTLE CALL. WAIT STAFF VERY GOOD.
