Creativity's evening entertainment offerings are adequate if not exciting. There is a solo pianist who plays background music before and after dinner, and local talent was brought aboard on a couple of occasions (singers, small classical ensembles, etc.).
However, the daytime offerings delivered were superb, ranging from dynamically presented talks on history, art and culture to fun port talks. Handouts were also excellent and included hand-annotated port maps. These materials made it easy to know exactly where we were and which landmarks we were passing.
The daily, gratis, off-ship walking tours were almost universally superior. The ship issues passengers personal headsets, which plug into wireless receivers. The off-ship guides are issued microphones and transmitters so that each group of about 20 passengers gets a private tour, conducted through a discreet wireless link.
There are, in addition, a handful of optional shore excursions for which there is a charge (averaging about $45 USD). We found these inconsistent. Some -- such as the excursion from Rouen to Honfleur -- weren't anything special. Others, such as a trip to the well-touristed Giverney, which was timed first thing in the morning to give us private access for a time, were outstanding.
