Service and Staff

5 out of 5
iwayan and erig in the main dining room could not have been more welcoming, kind, or friendly. they understood preferences within one day and were always welcoming . There was a gentlemen from Taiwan that worked the early shift in the coffee shop - i did not catch his name, but he was there every morning when they opened. He was always welcoming- efficient- and friendly no matter how the line or the grumpiness of the line waiting for coffee. He knew my name by the second day and my order by the third day. These three gentlemen are an incredible asset to Carnival. Jose - our ships room steward was equally kind and effecient
