Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Guest Services was very difficult to deal with the exception of one person
Medical staff Dr was good the nursing personell could dispense motion sickness medications, anything beyond that was better left to children.
I broke my foot during an excursion and chose to return to the ship for medical, waited for over an hour in waiting room to have a nurse ask if I needed ice to place on my obviously broken foot. The next hour and a half was spent waiting to be seen (4-5 people ahead fo me most serious was food poisoning no vomiting though)when finally seen Dr did good job but needed X-Rays, nurses argued as to who would take them, found out, why, neither one knew how to operate the machine and had to read each step as doing it to actually take the x-rays. When Dr asked if I wanted a nurse to apply a cast, I refused and she was none to surprised and applied the cast herself.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ports of Call
