Service and Staff
The crew were great. Met two very nice servers on the 14th deck. Ronnie from Indonesia and Karen from Peru. They were very friendly and helped my husband get out of his walker and sit in the chair. Then when we were ready to leave they helped him out of the chair so he could hold onto his walker. Our cabin stewart Juan was great also. He helped me get my husband into the cabin with his walker which was not an easy thing to do.
Enjoyed the big screen where we were able to view Paul McCartney and his band and Bon Jovi, and James Brown live in concert from different cities.
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony was nice size foir the two of us, but only 2 chairs provided and could not have company over to sit outside. Two chairs in room could have been more comfortable.
Food and Dining
We were on freestylye dining and found that there was a lack of communication between the staff at the door of the restaurant and the people waiting to go in. There were two lines, one for reservations holders and the other for walk ins. No one really knew which line was which and the people waiting on line blocked the elevators that were just outside the door of the restaurant.
Ship Quality
Elevators at reasonable distance from each other. Doors closed fairly slowly so I could get my husband with a walker in easily.
