Review summary

Shows were good, room was excellent, overall service was excellent.  Capt Jonny is the best.  Was disappointed that RC has decided to cater to the Gold Card Suites and remove the Viking Crown Lounge and make it a private area for Suite guest only.  Best place on the ship and they took it away.  Also had a problem with our early dining.  We requested a 8-10 top table a year ago and was given a 2 top table right in the middle of a high traffic area.  Ended up walking out the first night and eating at the Coastal Kitchen 3 nights and Windjammer the rest of the time.  Asked for another table but they said they couldn't accommodate us due to spring break.   I was a little surprised to find that even though the ship was full and the weather was perfect, there were plenty of chairs available in the Adult Solarium.  Usually that is not the case.

Requested 8-10 top table and got a 2 top. Why give that option and then not honor it?
