Review summary

The ship was very beautiful, clean, extremely well taken care of.  The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. 


I have been on other cruises in the past, and I remember being able to eat at so many places without having to pay extra just to eat.  The only "Complimentary" places I could find this time were at the Windjammer, and the Sapphire Dining Room.  I did find soft-serve ice cream on one of the outside areas, and it was also complimentary.  Everyone was very kind, considerate and pleasant except for the attendant in the Sapphire Room when I was trying to get to my dining table at 5:30 pm on May 17, 2017.  All he had to do was look at my card and he could have seen when I should eat and at what table, but all he could do was yell at me that my time to eat was 8:00 PM and I was not allowed to be there then at 5:30 pm.  Otherwise, everything was great.

It was nice and clean, and whenever we had a request about something it was always taken care of right away.
