We enjoyed the ports of call except for missing Le Havre on the 12 day British Isles portion of the cruise. But the ship needs some serious work done on it. The air conditioning didn't seem to work all through the night --we would wake up sweating. The shower water temperature was never regulated. It would go from Hot to cold & back again after just a couple days into the cruise. I reported numerous times but it still was not resolved by the time we got off the ship & no one ever got back to us. the drawers would open of their own accord when the seas were rougher & that never got resolved either. Our cabin steward tried to tell me they were designed that way. Steamers was a total disappointment--miss the Crab shack. The food was not very good in Steamers---I will never try it again it was so bad. 4 of us went & all of us agreed not worth the extra $$ charged for it. The food was pretty good in the regular dining room. The fish was nicely cooked but the duck was so overcooked. The shows were enjoyable for the most part--some great entertainment. We love Bravo --saw both shows --Love the Sopranos.

Ports of Call great---ship needs some work done on it.
