You'd think after being on the GrandbPrincess last January for two weeks I would have learned which elevator goes to which Dining Room but along with many others, I kept going the wrong way. You need to add many more signs.  By the elevators, as you start down on level 6 or 7, like Bottechelli this way....I seriously will consider taking another cruise on the ships with the walls blocking off direct access to the dining rooms.  


I have a walker. Either let me store it somewhere outside or give me a room with a wider doorway.  To have to lift the walker myself to get it I my room is bad after four back surgeries.  I intend to do many more cruises and these issues will affect which line I choose.
