Hi katlarocqu, Thank you for sharing your review! Sounds like you had an awesome time. I'm not a drinker, per se, but even I've noticed there are fewer wait staff doing the cocktail rounds.
Since I do enjoy a cold beer, wherever I go some where, either on a cruise or at a resort, I find "my guy" a waiter or waitress and tip well, I have yet to wait for a drink. My wife and I have both worked in the food service industry at one time or another, and service is the key to big tips. My guy on the Dawn was great. As for the room steward we had a good chat on the first day, and we had no issues, he took care of us.
Thanks for posting your first review here on the Website. I enjoyed reading about your wonderful cruise.
