But it went downhill from there. the dinning room was 1 1/2 hours to eat, the service just to get water refills was next to impossible, nobody liked the lobster it was very tough, and waited 3 days for a ashtray on our verandah, as far as the band, they were constantly being pulled for show night, we always enjoyed dancing before and we now have BB king show, so loud we couldn't stay. i found the staff really not that friendly. The last 2 cruises have not been good. It was good with the Dancing with the Stars. the next one we were stuck in the elevator, couldn't turn the hot water down in the room, and had no air for a day and a half, I slept on the balcony and we never knew where the AA meeting was they would change it without anyone knowing but we were compensated now on our cruise we booked for Jan 4th there is no smoking on balcony to make it short we enjoy danceable music Holland's is in slow motion so our next cruise with be with another line

The land part of the cruise was great
