Tp answer my own question...YES, it was just the same as a regular cruise, they had a comedian the 1st night and MotorCity a dance revue the 2nd night. Excellent entertainment. They also did the champagne waterfall.
The food was the best I have had on any cruiseline, a notch better than RCCL and leaps above NCL. Too bad it was just a 2 day cruise...it is on it's way to the Panama Canal right now...I wish I were still on it!
