Good - not great

Sail Date: June 21, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Steakhouse and especially the staff were awesome, well worth the additional expense.  The Chef's table was great.


The regular restaurant staff was indifferent and at times rude.  I wanted a window seat which they reserve for parties of 4 or what they call a shared table.  Instead of taking 2 minutes explaining that they said sure and then sat us near the dishs two tables from the window.  The next meal I asked to speak to a manager and he told me the details.  two minutes is all it would took, yet no one bothered to explain.


Also when boarding the ship and for the first day they offer "tours" of the ship - just pure sales.  A "tour" of the spa was a 30 minute sales presentation.  Why couldn't they do that in 10 minutes.  Stay away from all presentations - just a waste of time.
