We choose this cruise because we were on the same ship back in October thru the Med. I am getting tired of Holland. The entertainment is lacking and they seem to be nickel and diming for everything after having charged a pretty hefty price in the first place. We choose this ship for the BB King Blues Lounge. That was the best entertainment on the ship. However, even that was just OK. The main stage entertainment was good on the last show of the cruise. All the other shows were "iffy" at best. The service was very friendly and nice. The dining was OK but the food tastes got old quick for us. Some of the port stops were disappointing at best. The last two stops, we docked at around 8:00Am and were leaving by 1:00PM. We barely had time to get out for our tours. And we were not necessarily dock close to the port itself so we di not really have any time to walk around the town/port. I told my wife that we might want to consider cruising with another line.

Turned out OK
