Review summary

Buffet food was lukewarm, Limited accessibility to food.  Service personnel did not answer phone promptly, Cabin staff made no effort to learn our names. Cabin was much smaller than comparable room on Carnival. Confusing or no "signage" when instructed to go to a specific location. Loud "background" music in relax/reading/lounge areas.
