We totally loved the cruising staff. They made this cruise extra fantastic!!! I have never seen such a loving and hard working staff as this one. I know we were charged a flat tip amount and we tipped extra but I wish we had a bunch more for they were worth so so much more! The food was wonderful as well. The room was always tended to as was the entire ship. Now for the things I would change: Hot tub rules, everything I have read on the internet says most rule of thumb is no one under the age of 5 some even go as much as 12 yrs and under not to be in the hot tub. Well we did at all times see young children in the hot tubs and it made it hard to use them as adults. Also they were in for more than the 10 min that they should be and weren't supervised by an adult. Really wish you could come up with a solution on this. (Maybe post that as well in your rules) Then it comes to the sunning areas over the ship, there really isn't enough room for all. Even on the upper decks, some would get an area and feel they owned that area for the day. (some as early as 6am) Aside from these issues we had a wonderful time and would recommend this cruise to all friends and family. Thank you for your time and hope you take these issues seriously.
