Review summary

The ship itself was a great first impression when embarking. It was very nicely laid out and easy to maneuver.  The food was excellent and presented beautifully with a very attentive crew in all the dining venues.  Had a very bad experience in the specialty restaurant Toscano with a forgetful waiter and some disappointing food.  

Spoke with the Chef about it and he was apologetic and offered to redo, but didn't want him to bother.     Entertainment was bad.  Terribly uncomfortable seats in the Riviera lounge. A very senior group of passengers - mostly 70-80-90 year old group. Wonderful people to visit with listening to lifetime stories.
