Review summary

The Elation dining room was wonderful.  We had two of the best servers ever!!   Socorro was the head waiter and was so nice and charming.   Geetalanjali? was the greatest.  She saw to our every need.   They even brought food we did not order because they heard us trying to make a decision between two entrees.   They both always had a smile and when we saw them in the other parts of the ship they came up and greeted us by name.   Fantastic duo.

  The triple room was not satisfactory for 3 senior adults.   One of the 70 year olds had to crawl up a ladder to get to the upper bunk.   This was not safe for a person in their 70's.   We asked for a roll away bed and they said they would get back to us,but never did.   They also said that they did not want to put another bed in the room as the room was only for 3 people.   After we sailed, we could hardly smuggle an unpaid guest in.   What if we just wanted to put a paid grandchild in for the night so his parents could have a night out????    Was truly disappointed by this lack of concern.

Bunk beds are not suitable for people in their 70's and lack of concern for their comfort and safety was negligent.
