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. The hot tub was not even bath water temperature. If one wanted hot water the shower in one's cabin was the place to go. On rough sea days the very deep pool over flowed onto the decks. The water overflow was not moped up and became a hazard. The best musical group on board was a classical string quartet from Poland. The best asset of the ship is it's crew. However, many of them are originating from the former Soviet bloc countries and they have a mindset of they are right and y'all are wrong. We personally witnessed and heard waiters from the east bloc counties arguing with passengers at two separate times. One over the temperature of tea water in the Red Ginger. Our worst experience was over a Champagne bottle which upon opening exploded and spayed approximately 1/2 to 1/3 of the bottle into the air and the waiter from Serbia told me to kiss off when I asked for a replacement and then that was followed by his supervisor from Brasil when I complained to him. Weather wise fog in the first two ports of call. Cold days at sea and high waves in Cabo MX

Cabin Review

Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom
Cabin A1 7038
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.
