Cruise was picked by a family member. The itinerary looked and was, good. Boarding in Manhattan, with ports in Canada, N. Ireland, Ireland, Wales, U.K. and France. Problems, however, started before even boarding the ship. With a boarding window around 10:30 a.m., arrived on time, and was told that special paperwork had to be filled out because of the Canadian port and that there was a cost of $65.00 per person for this paperwork. Told to find a website to do this. Website immediately hit with 1500 plus people attempting to log on with predicted results. Lines stretched through the terminal and after meeting a representative and unable to do as instructed, as well as everyone else, was told to go to the back of the line and start over. Was told we had been previously informed of this, and in the same breath told that they had just been informed of the need for this. 3 hours later, boarded the ship. Attempted to open cabin door with card and it wouldn't work. After replacing card, it still wouldn't work. Discovered that the card was issued to another family member in a different cabin and he had been issued with mine. Straightened that out (because I love standing in line at the purser's desk) and tried to move forward. Tickets for a scheduled tour arrived with only one ticket for the two individuals in my party. Stood in line again to get second ticket. Found out later that they had issued my ticket to another family member in a different cabin.
Cabin was cramped in comparison to other cruises.
Entertainment is hit or miss. Some of the musical numbers were outstanding. The comedians were somewhat funny. One of the comedians carpet bombed with the F word and that lost shock value after about the tenth time. Discussing sex with centenarians and no sex with wife because she had given birth wasn't funny. He could have stood on stage and said "ka ka poo poo" for 45 minutes and been as effective.
