Review by dbldar

Everything was fun except that the dining table waiter looks disrespectful.

In response to review, CrusinTim says ...

The "cleanness guy"? Did you mean the STEWARD? And he only cleaned your cabin every 2 or 3 days? I seriously doubt that!!

I find it hard to believe (though not impossible) that your cabin was only serviced one time during your 4 night cruise. Perhaps the Steward serviced the room while you were out playing? If this is not the case, I would hope that you reported the lack of service to passenger services.

As far as the waiter, you could have reported your problems to either the headwaiter or the Maitre d'. I doubt he was being purposefully rude, but if he doesn't provide good service, he should be reported. (His lack of communication was more than likely he was not comfortably fluent in the English language)

once every 2-3 days? After 1 day of no service I would have addressed the issue.


poor MDR service? Again, one time is a fluke, twice is a problem & I would have addressed the issue.

I know with RC on my last cruise I needed to put the service room tag out as a sign we were ready for the room to be cleaned, but I agree with everyone previously.... Should have brought it up to the customer service desk and/or matri-d

I was just on the Victory and had good MDR service.   The MDR staff is spread very thin.  I think communication may have been the issue.  If you go through a lot of water you could have asked him nicely to bring out extra water at the beginning of the meal.  No need to stand up and yell at him in the dinning room.  


From the grammar in the OP I assume that the OP is not English as primary language.

I'm a little surprised that a cruiser with at least a couple of cruises did not go‚ to the customer service counter and resolve any issues. Generally the cruise ship staff try very hard to keep everyone satisfied.

The less bitching from passengers the better, and many if not all problems can be resolved with a kind word and a smile
