Review Summary

I was pretty satisfied with the cruise for the price until the last day at sea. We ate lunch in the dining room and there was a large (aprox. 3 inch long) piece of glass in my soup. I told the waitress, she told the manager. He asked if I wanted something else. I said I'd like more soup, (but without glass). The replacement soup was done wrong. The manager came back again,then had another soup brought. I told guest services, they didn't seem to care, basically they said since I wasn't hurt and they "addressed it" with the staff, that's all they felt they needed to do. The several times I had to wait in line for guest services the line was very long. There were a few issues, but the main problem is that they didn't seem to care. When I tried to call them from my state room, they never answered. It was very dissappointing.
