One of my favorite activities onboard the ship is the Punchliners Comedy Club. I think I went to 6 shows during the cruise. I went to a few of the shows in the main theater. I always enjoy the action comedy, but some of the musicals tend to bore me and my family, so we don’t attend. We did go to the show with the Fun Force, Dancing in the Streets. It was good. The Main Theater is NOT large enough to accommodate the number of guests. We got to the show 25 minutes early and could not find seating for the 4 of us together. People were saving seats everywhere – it was very frustrating.
The Fun Force showing in the Atrium was wonderful! Well, at least for me, the other three in my family got bored and wanted to leave before it was over. I guess I am a child of the 80s and loved break dancing.
We also like the opportunity for taking a break and watching the seaside theater. Oh my... is that Justin Bieber on the screne? Don't worry adults, the kid shows are over by 8:30 or so.
Lido during the late evening (my favorite time to enjoy it: peacefully):
I really enjoyed the food on the ship. My daughter ate at the Pasta Bar for lunch every sea day. My son loved the burrito bar, and I enjoyed the Tandori grill. My husband can eat anything. I believe we went to the dining room every evening on this cruise. We had Anytime dining, and the service was really good, and the food too. We tried the Dija-Ever dish every night, and the escargot and frog legs surprisingly received a huge thumbs up from my son.
We typically had breakfast and lunch on the lido, but tried the dining room once for each of these meals. The lunch service was unbelievably SLOW. All the tables around us were complaining. Breakfast was a little better, but it appeared to be the same food from the lido deck. My husband and son loved the omelets from the lido deck.
Watching the wait staff sing:
