How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The dinner and show was good for a special occasion. The show's MC did a good job and made sure anyone celebrating a special occasion (anniversary/ birthday etc.) could be recognized if they wished to be. However, the food was pricey for the quality -- On top of the show prices, it was $42 each for 3 courses plus the costs of drinks and coffee ($10 for each glass of wine). The appetizers were good (corn and shrimp basque and lettuce salad) while the entrees were average at best (crab cakes and rockfish) and desserts were garden variety/ clearly refrigerated for some time prior. The waiter tried to take my soup plate before I was finished so that he could take our plates at the same time (major no-no for any high-end restaurant). The wine selection was expensive for the quality. The jazz/ classical guitarist at the beginning was nice background music. The magician was little cheesy for adults. The comedian Mike Storck was pretty funny with clever literary and cultural references (although I am glad we had the earlier PG version as the uncensored late night version would probably be laced with too many profanities for our tastes since there were already enough in the early evening version of the show. Mike had pokes at the downside of being a comedian on cruises, his bad experiences with U.S. made cars, Alabama rednecks, ADD/ADHD (his own), crazy old girl friends, and "ethics for dummies" (so if any of those topics are likely to offend you, it may be a good idea to skip this show (and there were some offended guests).

Help others enjoy a great night out
