Two shows were quite well performed, while one was a head-scratcher while we wondered if anyone was paying attention to the monotonous-sounding music and singing. The best performers were a trapeze couple from Eastern Europe who choreographed and executed completely original moves.
Some food was delicious and some was disastrous. Mushroom risotto contained old, rotten mushrooms; some meat was not hot and was very tough to cut; grouper fish tasted like it has not been refrigerated. Our waiter served us robotically without enthusiasm. We paid for a premium wine package and then our favorite wine was no longer available half-way into the cruise, and our sommelier made no effort to find us a comparable wine.
A couple of items were broken in the gym and one day we had no towels, so I got a pool towel. When I gambled in the casino, the dealer kept pushing me to place bets according to her preferences, so I never returned after that odd interaction. Otherwise the cruise proceeded normally without incident, which made for a pleasant enough vacation.
The temperature control in our cabin did not function so we were always very cold and both of us caught colds. On the last night of the cruise we heard loud noises near our room that sounded like repairs being made, and we smelled soldering or welding. The room steward refused to bring us a do-not-disturb doorknob tag, saying he preferred to use "intuition," and consequently he entered a couple of times while we were seeking private moments.
