Review summary

Too many mistakes on our meals. Had to wait 45 min before we got our appetizer , while the table next to us was seated after we were and got their dessert when we finally got our appetizer. The eggs Benedict I ordered the first morning was made with cinnamon raisen toast. The next day, it wasn’t toasted and the next day, the Canadian bacon was missing. When I ordered room service , I ordered grilled cheese. I got untoasted bread with a slice of unmelted velveeta type cheese on it. Horrid ! Couldn’t get cream in the dining room for coffee. I bought the beverage package. When I asked for fresh squeezed juice, it was met with hesitation and an attitude of hassle. Out of all of my cruises, I’ve never before had a complaint before This.
