Should have more selections for the buffet on lido deck. Better and more hours like breakfast 7am-11:30am and lunch 12-4pm. desserts are too fancy should have more basic but yummy desserts like choc. cake, cheesecake, pudding etc. not all that fancy rubbery desserts that everyone takes one bite of only. They look good but dont taste that good. Alot of people were dissappointed in the hours of the buffet on lido deck.Also have not ever been able to try the sushi bar- the hours are not very effective to enjoy before early dining. Also last morning is very rushed and even the cabin stewards knock on doors early(7am)and try to get you to leave immediately. Should not have a limit of drinks or sandwiches for cabins. My kids visit us in our cabin and we can only order 6 of one item. Why is there a limit if room service is included? The pizza had very little cheese on them as well. Other ships have more cheese. They shouldnt be skimpy on the cheese or toppings or how much you want. Buffet should really have more selections and dining room servers should not make comments when you order more than one item. You should be comfortable ordering as much as you want. Comments like wow you can eat that much? or thats alot of food etc. is not necessary and embarrassing and uncomfortable. Also why do they only have all the toppings for the icecream on one side of the ship only?? It should be on both sides- and the hamburgers and frenchfries also on both sides. It gets extremely crowded at lunch time and also you have to walk across the ship to get it if you want to be on the quiet side by the pool.
It was okay but not great cruise

Pros: the dining room for dinner and the shows
Cons: Not enough time for breakfast. It should be until 11:30 am. They even start shutting down stations early on lido deck. Should be until 11:30 in dining room as well. Also seating in dining room for breakfast and lunch is too impersonal. You should be able to sit with your own party if desired an
