Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Mocha Martin from Javablue was very friendly and professional enjoyed the cappuccino designs. I Gusti did an outstanding job and always ensured we were being taken care off. Bingo Bradley was funny and entertaining made bingo and other activities that he participated in so much fun. He would make an excellent Cruiser Director on any ship. Matt had lots of energy and made sure that everything went smooth and seemed like he participated on every fun activity.

We did an excursion and tour guide was very friendly and ensured everything went smoothly. Did not like the pressure from the locals to sell anything, very pushing individuals.
