3rd cruise. Last one in the early 2000's. SAME FAKE art auction and same tanzanite sales pitch. Its old and scammy, cruiselines ! The show Elements was a 10 ! Other entertainment very good ! All meat was tough. All hot food not hot. All food a mix of very good and not so good. Complimentary dining room service is slow between courses. I had to start ordering to get the appetizer and entree at the same time and skipping dessert. The three complimentary dining rooms were beautiful and was able to sit by a window if arrived early. Pool cold. Hot tub not hot. Fitness center too small and crowded except on port days. Observation deck was beautiful, large, comfy and had refreshments. Cabin inside made into large queen. One side had only about six inches from the wall. Other side ok. This cabin also had 2 pull down beds that store in the ceiling. I really don't see this tiny cabin serving four people even if two are small children. Nice shower. TV had good programming including some good movies. Room steward did a good job at getting the job done.

Didn't hate it
