Last year same ship going to Norway , there were 3 Broadway musical (production show as per cruise director, Ross). This time, there were none. Only vocalist, pianist, magician and comedian. Compare with 12 to 20 dancers on musical shows. Is it cost saving??? The ship supposed to be high tech. But the back ground high tech lighting for the evening shows failed to work for the first week. The ship is still impressive, even this is the second time onboard. The food in dining room is pretty boring, not much selection. There were more selection in Lido market, very impressive. There are 4 musical bands that provide lots of choice of entertainment in the evening. Since there were no musical shows, no dancers available to provide dance lessons on sea days like before. The shore excursion staff provided good info on port of call during sea days. There is not much activities during sea days. Only 3 sea days out of 13 day cruise, the cruise line should provide more activities. If there is no more musical shows like this cruise, our group will take another cruise line that provide the show in the future.

Entertainment is poor
