Great Ship and excellent itinerary. Mostly good food but poor service in dining room. Very cramped seating and although our head waiter was slow but effective, his server was extremely slow and obviously not very well trained. They tried to be friendly, but not an excuse. People at other tables around us were seated after us, but we were always served last. We decided to eat at the buffet most of the time which was not what we really wanted, but found less aggravating! We enjoyed the main shows, but this cruise lacked other entertainment. The Miami DJ was terrible! The Sky lounge was beautiful but wasted most of the time for lack of enjoyable music. The exception was the 70's night. The room attendant was excellent and we left him a nice additional tip.

Cramped seating and poor service pushed us to eat at buffet most of the time. Not what we expected.
