Thanks for the civil response, and I'm sorry if there was any confusion about my intent. My "snippy" response wasn't directed at your comments, I respect your opinion and understand your assessment, even if I don't totally agree. I was more reacting to the comments from others about it being a "huge disappointment" and even making it a personal attack on the cruise director (from someone who has never even been on a cruise before). That is what I felt was really out of line. Enough of the controversy, as you put it, I can't wait to see the rest of your report. Thanks again for sharing it all!
