Review summary

Cruise was excellent!  Want to recognize a few of your staff that made the cruise even better.  Fitzroy was our Cabin Steward (room 2266) and he was outstanding.  Everytime we saw him he was working so hard to keep the cabins maintained, he was always there when we needed him and when we asked him about something once (i.e. ice in the bucket, extra towel) he never forgot it the rest of the cruise.  We only had to mention it to him once.  In the dining room we were very pleased with Monika (we were in the 321-323 table range).  We had "any time" dining and when we got Monika we continued to ask for her each night.  In the spa Shiela P. was wonderful - it was the best spa experience ever, she was outstanding.  Overall the cruise exceeded our expectations.

Food and Dining

Monika in the dining room was excellent. She was so friendly and accommodating, as was the woman who was her assistant, sorry to say I don't have her name. Monika was there every moment to make sure we had everything we needed.

Service and Staff

Fitzroy as our Cabin Steward was excellent also. He made sure we had everything we needed and when we asked for something (i.e. ice for the bucket, extra towel) he always remembered - we never had to ask twice for anything. He was there when we needed him all the time and he was always working so hard to maintain the cabins.

Nice and roomy, very clean.

Ship tip

Breakfast at the Taste Bar was a good find. Not busy like up on the Lido deck, food was very good - everything you wanted was there - and it was quicker than eating in the dining room.
