The itinerary,ports of call, length of the cruise. It started with the compromise of my credit card at the hotel the cruise line put us up at in Miami. This happened to several passengers on the cruise ship but the ship tried to keep it under raps. The food on the ship was excellent and you could bring as much booze on board at each port as you wanted. The crew was very good to deal with. Those are the good things but it falls off quickly after that. The entertainment was poor at best, the insignia lounge is a two flat level lounge. First level is about 5 rows deep and if you are not seated on row 1 or 2 you have poor viewing. The second level is 3 or 4 rows deep and also flat. You can see over the first level but you are back of them and the first two row are the ones with good viewing. The ship has ping pong out on an open deck 9 so wind plays a big part in what you can and can't do, shuffleboard, and putt-putt golf are on open deck 11. Bridge and trivia are available. The casino is small and has no dice table. The disco on deck 10 has drinks and dancing but no restrooms ? The stateroom was dated and needs upgrades. The refrigerator was non-working more that it worked. It was replaced twice. The T.V. VCR never worked. The internet service was poor ( not enough bandwidth) at best and The Around World (ATW) passengers were suppose to get free medical. Several ATW guest had medical bills over $20,000. I'll close with the Komoto Island and Captain Miss A Port . Two weeks before we arrived at Komoto the ship sent a information letter stating you couldn't get off the ship without a park ranger (locals with long sticks). You either paid the ship or you didn't get of. This is not in any info about the cruise. We missed 8 ports in the South Pacific, weather was to blame and right fully so. But we were late to many ports by hours but always left on time to be late at the next port. I've been on 54 cruises and this was not the worst but far from being a luxury cruise.
