Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our waiter in the main dining room and his assistant were the BEST thing about our cruise. Siddarth and Matteus. Our cabin steward, Tokey, was super helpful. He took wonderful care of us. My husband has a bad back and he would fill his ice bag every morning and evening.
