Dinner each night was a treat because of our wait staff. Our waiter cooked up several Indian Dishes (in addition to our menu selections) and served 2 different Indian dishes each night family style to our table. The other provided us with entertainment and magic tricks at the end of our meal each night. We will Miss them both. I have been on numerous cruises, (never with RC before); and this one was pure enjoyment. Dinner was never too slow; and the chef came out each and every night to ask about our meals.

Our waiter Augustine Gonzales, and Changching (hope I am spelling it write - he is from China) and is fairly new were exceptional. Their personalities and extra things they did for us and the laughing we all did made the trip so much more fun! The chef came out each night and asked about our food.

Cruise Director was fun; and the ice show was amazing as well a the Quest game. The 70's music trivia was not fun; because there were only a few seconds in each song..

Ship Tip

8 pm dining allowed us to have our own wait staff, as we did not have to share them with any other table.
