Review Summary

The room was great. The food was mediocre. The staff was great. Room service got all our orders wrong and the ship did a poor job of ensuring that people did not reserve chairs around the pool area. For the record they did ask people not to do it, but did nothing when people reserved chairs and didn't use them half a day. There was an incident while in Bermuda where another ship hit our boat. The matter turned out to be much ado about nothing, but passangers were concerned and very little information was provided until it was time for us to leave Bermuda. There were older folks in the ship visually concerned about the matter and I strongly feel the captain could have managed the situation better by easing concerns.
