Glad to see you and James enjoyed most things about your cruise on Constellation. She is one of my favorites, even with that "Bar at the end of the earth" fiasco.
I think alot of your comments regarding the entertainment are a result of being a longer voyage- draws a more elderly crowd- quite port intensive, so they're in bed earlier. And that also explains some of the lack of participation.
The entertainment is geared towards the passengers onboard, or at least what they think the've learned as the "norm" for these cruises, in terms of what the passengers will want.
