I took a friend on her first cruise. She thought the food was outstanding, with great flavor and much variety. All of the employees were very friendly and extremely helpful. We encountered one small bad experience, when people came to our deck chairs to claim them as theirs. They had been gone for more than an hour and we were the second replacement. I would suggest that there is no chair saving. A good rotation in hot sun is a good idea. There is no way for you to enforce the 40 minute rule, anyway.
also, I wish we did not have to go to the bar for the soda, as that was a little wait.
overall, things went well. Your staff is well organized and efficient. Everywhere we went someone was continuously cleaning.
thanks, we will come again.
