Lots of things change....cabin was better. Roomier and comfortable. Quiet. Entertainment was fairly good. I liked the juggler best. The show Look of Love should have been called Look of Lust and I was embarrassed for my father who is very conservative. Variety show was good. Cruise Director was fun and did a lot of funny little games with late nighters. Drawbacks 1) buffet was horrible - crowded and food average at best. Restaurants had limited hours so sometimes it was buffet or nothing if you didn't want to eat in room or pay extra. Main dining rooms were good and food much better. 2) lack of quiet space - really none- even small library always full of people with kids, boardgames ect. 3) add on service charge. I think the staff worked much harder to give guests excellent service when this wasn't just a gimmie. Enjoyed the art auctions and the hot tub. The massage was good but the lack of robe at entry and the masseuse standing in room waiting on tip was unprofessional. Ports were good. The best thing was the Tracy Arm Fjord day of touring.
