In general the cruise was good but For those who have cruised for years some things are not changing for the better. Some items are that coke and other soft drinks are now charged for at a $1.73 a clip. Thank G-d for the Coke card. It is all right for the cruise line to make money as a business but I believe the information should be disclosed to the passengers as part of their or prior to putting up your money.
Other examples are juice is only free at Breakfast and coffee is charged for at bingo games. In addition the making of omelettes and getting smoked salmon at breakfast was a well kept secret and it took half the cruise before I was able to figure it out. Otherwise it was a wonderful ship and cruise. The food particularly the pastries were excellent.
The entertainment was generally good with an occasional clunker but the time the show started was inconsistent with the later seating.
Back to the food. Tequila's which is a Steakhouse was excellent. The service at all levels was some of the best we have encountered. We still recommend this ship as a wonderful vacation.
