Initial setup experience was nice. They promised a discount since I work for Univ of Michigan, but they had some trouble figuring out how to sign me up. Eventually they said the discount had been approved, but that it might not show up on my bill for a couple of months. If it didn't appear, they said, call us at the store and we'll fix it. Well, 3 months went by, and no discount on the bill, so I called the store. Now they say I can have the discount for the current month, but they can't apply it retroactively. This is NOT what I was initially told and despite escalating to a manager, no satisfaction was to be had. This is exactly in line with my previous poor experiences with AT&T customer service, which seems to be rigidly focused on screwing customers out of money. (This time it was only about $30, but last summer on a trip abroad, they stuck me with about $280 of charges for services I never used, which they could plainly see on their usage counters.) This megacorporation displays absolutely no sense of context or flexibility. I am not a happy customer and would switch to another provider tomorrow if there were any that offered comparable service. I tried TMobile, precisely to avoid going back to AT&T, but the so-called 4G really isn't, and there was no signal in half of my house. So I am stuck with them but angry as hell about it.

Don't miss this place — it is outstanding. I live in Paris, and I live to eat, and this place is right up there with the best in its price range anywhere. I had the Steckrüben-Quitten soup and the succulent Ibérico pork. Both were amazing, as were the sides that came with them. I can highly recommend the Spanish Onix red wine, which resembles a Chateauneuf du Pape. The only minor disappointment was the "tepid chocolate cake," just slightly overcooked (these need to be one-third liquid to be perfect; this one had a small liquid center but not quite enough.) The shipboard setting is absolutely lovely. I was there at night in January, but still two swans hung around near the boat and the light on the water is beautiful. A magical evening.
