Let's start with the good, then go to the bad, and the ugly.
The staff was outstanding - a bunch of hard-working, thoughtful and perceptive young people. They knew your name and your preferences. They were on the J-O-B 24-7.
The entertainment - the pianist and the magician - comedian were outstanding (conversely, the historian was a twerp and should not be permitted to do another ship - he actually started arguments between diners during dinner by making politically unacceptable remarks and then let the fur fly). Dancers, regular entertainers - a nice bunch of kids.
Smoke-filled mess. A nightmare for breathing purposes. So smokey, my eyes routinely teared.
