Review SummaryProcedures need to be refined:
Example. We were on a line waiting to be seated for breakfast in the Bacchus dining room. The hostess was on the phone discussing something with a guest. 5 seating hostesses were standing around behind her waiting to seat guests. At leas 5 other parties were standing behind us on line. Nothing moved because the gal on the phone was the only one authorized to assign tables. Poor procedure! Poor management!
I have more examples relating to lines returning to the ship, food availability, timelyness of activity announcements and scheduling, training of the some of the dining staff who stacked dishes in front of us on the table.
The staff was always courteous, helpful and friendly

There was never a short line on this ship. On the Lido deck everyone came, saved a large table, regardless of how many in their group and caused a table shortage on more than one occasion. Perhaps the staff should be suggesting to guests that larger tables be left vacant for larger groups.
