I'm surprised, my experience was the exact opposite of yours in the MDR. As you can see in my video, the aft dining room was nearly empty every time I ate there. Never a wait for anything, food was served to me fresh out of the kitchen. Hot stuff was hot, cold stuff was cold. Never had a half-empty glass. The piano player/singer was often the only one there while I ate my desserts.

Thank you for leaving your review but I am sorry that you did not have a great experience. I can relate to one of your points, sometimes our ability to cruise to an area is driven more by circumstance (e.g., available time, budget) than by what would have been a first-choice desire. Best wishes for better experiences in the future.
