|Sorrento’s pizza||Fitness Center and Day Spa|
|“Full-size” flat screen TVs in every stateroom (I especially enjoy watching the Titanic Channel. No, you silly person. It’s the bow camera where you get to see what Kate Winslet saw leaning off the front of the boat.)||Full-size sports court (What the heck is a “sports court”? I guess if you make it up, you also get to decide what “full size” means.)|
|Included in your cruise price is most meals (gourmet 5-course dining room, buffet dining, or room service!)||Themed bars and lounges, Vintage wine bar, Boleros Latin-themed lounge (where the cruise company makes most of their money—except from teetotalers like me)|
|9-hole miniature golf course (with the biggest water hazard you’ll ever see!)||Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop (where the cruise company makes most of their money off me.)|
I hope to see you there!
