We flew Delta non-stop from Orlando Thursday evening. We picked up our Avis rental car and checked in at Harrah's (valet parking always). Our room with 2 queens was WAY down the hall in the Carnaval tower. Beds were very comfortable, loved the angled window (not so much the view of valet). Even though this is one of the older rooms, it (including bathroom) was in great shape. Can't say the same of the hallway carpet, but since 3 of our 5 nights were comped, it was fine. I would have preferred housekeeping earlier in the day as room usually wasn't serviced until 4pm. We had one maintenance issue (with the toilet) that was resolved promptly. On our 3rd evening, a wheeled cart with a refrigerator showed up in the room - no idea why - it sat there for the next 2 days. No problem. I like Harrah's pool as it is great for morning laps, but do wish it opened earlier. Only one time were we challenged by trying to find a chaise. Drink prices were too high at the pool so we didn't bother with them. Played my slots every morning. As long as I followed my self-imposed guidelines (secret!), I did really well and came out significantly ahead 3 out of 4 days. I love early mornings at the resort because everything is all mine. Every evening and some afternoons, we filled with shows. Human Nature - my #1 all time favorite - now at the Venetian, was awesome for the 8th & 9th times. Vegas! The Show @ Planet Hollywood was even better the 2nd time around. We all absolutely loved Million Dollar Quartet @ Harrah's. Jubilee @ Bally's was disappointing (great sets & costumes, good music, not enough dancing and hated the time-filler acts). Defending the Caveman was OK, somewhat funny and some good points, but not what we expected. We enjoyed Jeff Civillico @ The Quad but based on reviews, it didn't quite meet our expectations. Jeff was adorable and his show was entertaining, but silly. The show opener did a great job getting audience engaged and excited, but should have been just 5 - 10 minutes (was too long). Our best afternoon EVER in Las Vegas was spent on Maverick Airlines with their Soaring Eagle flight over the Grand Canyon. This was a first class experience that just made us want more. We flew in their "caravan" with leather seats and large windows. Our pilot was entertaining and informative, not to mention (highly irrelevant) very cute. I had purchased too many Flavors Groupons and we were sick to death of the repetitive buffet. We really did enjoy (another Groupon) Kahunaville @ Treasure Island. Most breakfasts were at McDonalds, so dining mostly was just to get something to eat. Our return flight was Southwest and I am totally over them. I had paid $12.50 each for EBCI and we go great boarding passes. But those stinkers were actually selling better positions at the gate for $8. How dare they? We got aisle seats across from each other and made it home without throttling the unaccompanied minors sitting forward of us. (Flight attendant did apologize to the passengers sitting in their vicinity). Upon arrival in Orlando, we waited 50 minutes for our luggage. The list of reasons I hate Southwest just continues to grow, but because they offer non-stops, I may end up booking them to / from Las Vegas again in October. We had a great time!
