Review summary

The crew was excellent and the dining room food well presented.  Unfortunately the internet service was non existent for me.  It cost 75 cents a minute but I was unable to connect to my e mail server. (Gmail and Ameritech.net /yahoo) Customer service removed the charges on my bill without any hassle.


I am a senior and not very interested in all of the fitness classes available.
