Itinerary was interesting. Promotional brochures are inaccurate as to Shore Excursions. Ground operators and step-on guide in Niagara Falls, ON were horrible. Pre-arranged transfers post cruise by taxi did not happen. Cuisine was excellent as was service. On-board entertainment and lectures were lacking. Ports of call were lack luster. Included bar service was only for 1 hour a day. At a per diem of $2000.00 for a category "R" cabin I would expect more. This was the most expensive cruise we have been on to date based on per diem and I would not classify it as a luxury experience. The cabin was large, but we experienced an air conditioner on day one that had a bearing in need of replacement. The engineer showed up and changed the filter and sprayed some oil on the bearing. That relieved the noise for one night. We just put up with it for the rest of the cruise. This is NOT a first class operation.

Not what we expected.
