Review summary

Having been on this beautiful ship since its inaugural transatlantic, I've seen many changes over my total of 60 days on board at different times.  

The staff is as caring as ever, and the cleanliness is still fantastic. Jamie and rest of staff is still top notch. 

However cutbacks in food continues. Desserts have gone down in variety and quality. 

Maintenance in some items such as a forever broken hand washing unit in aft Lido, exercise bike in gym never fixed, scale in gym broken, etc. 

nobody in Florida or on ship can take care of these annoyances?

15 minutes to get cold bread at table

rock hard muffin for room disservice

cold main courses at dinner on your time dining

15 people in line waiting for pizza because one poor man can't keep up. 

This ship is still beautiful, and I'm sure management will be constantly working to keep it this way.
