My wife and I enjoyed our cruise, the ship was fantastic and the staff were great. It did though, feel very different to our previous cruises. There was a continuous feeling of what can only be described as cost cutting measures across the whole ship, From little things like the discontinuation of providing speciality teas in the dining areas to the feeling of reduced numbers of staff, as we had much longer wait times in getting served or entertained. We were always rushed during our dinner service in the any time dining restaurant. Down to the stopping of the big Las Vagas shows in the main theatre, which was a major disappointment for us.
The entertainment was very poor lest not for the guests themselves who played the major role in our entertainment presentations. The remaining staff were fantastic and very helpful, pleasant and kind. This won't put us off crushing and we liked this ship, but we will be checking out the next cruise much more carefully in making sure we will receive all of the things important too us, even if that means switching shipping company's.
