The length, West Coast Departure and Xmas and New Year. The public areas of the ship were nicely appointed but the showroom is a flat level and one can not see the feet of the dancers from about a few rows back. One is obliged to view the presentations on a large screen TV's that are located at the front of the showroom.
Dining was very average and the menus were mostly in French and Italian. During the two weeks, we felt that the Menu except for the last night was repeated again. The two specialty restaurants were all show and fluff. The lobster portions were bit size. There was no turkey, ham and/or trimmings to be had on Xmas day.The goose served instead was not appealing or tasteful.
As to entertainment, the acts were very dated. A male singer in one production show sang two complete songs off key.
Cabin was too small over all. Bed was Queen Size and was too small for 6'2" Male and/or two adults.Very little amount of closet and storage space. no proper place to rest and sit. Mini sofa did not hold two adults and was too low, Suitable for children only. Lighting above vanity was inadequate. Bathroom is a total disaster as shower enclosure is inadequate for a adult. Toilet is located in an position that a tall person may have to leave the door open in order to utilize. So called newly overhauled vessel had tape holding A/C return cover. Large 2 inch ding in bathroom counter top. Shower surround leaked.
Easy to walk to shops in terminal area.
1/2 mile walk from ship to exit port terminal.
Enjoyed the Beer shore side and enjoyed the Folk Show at the terminal
Getting onto vessel was a easy task with no hassle after spending the the previous nite at a Century City 5 star hotel.
