We arrived at the Cruise Port at 10AM and boarded at noon .Our cabin was available by 1PM but we did not get our luggage till 6PM. Our Cabin Steward was the worst we ever had in the 40 years we have been cruising . The food in the MDR was okay at best ,nothing special .The Waitstaff was excellent. Food in the Specialty restaurants and service was very good. I did not appreciate the talent brought in with the exception of George Solomon and the 3 other guys singing the songs of the Four Seasons. The Second City group was not funny . Leo and the Staff singers and dancers were excellent. The shore excursions were overpriced . Our cabin was adequate but not enough clothes hangers .Luckily we brought our own. Disembarkation was fine.
