it was Christmas week and unless you need to take a cruise Christmas week, don't. The ship was packed, packed, packed and for that reason seemed understaffed. The buffet lines for breakfast and lunch were long and constant. If you wanted seconds forget it. Getting back in line was just not worth it.

The entertainment at night in the theater was horrible. We only had one show as the second stage show had to be cancelled due to technical problems. The other nights they had a talent show and one of their singers performed another night. Really disappointed in the entertainment after dinner

This cruise is for families, not couples as I think couples would be very disappointed in the food which is an important part of the cruise experience .

The food was fair at best. Nothing great. The everyday menu has dried out salmon and tough steaks as their focus. Our servers were great and tried to make the best of just average food. Even the lobsters were tough and overcooked, it was a shame!

Stateroom was clean and always well maintained.

It was the usual and customary onboard activities. I thought Tex who was our cruise director was very good.
