Review summary

This is our second cruise and will continue to book our next one on that years current cruise. It is always an amazing experience. The only complaint I would have (and it may seem petty but I do think it is something that should be offered automatically) is the fact that real cream is not offered at any dining room, buffet, or the cafe unless you ask for it, and then most waiters didn’t understand what u were asking for because half and half is at every station. The half and half is milk. No cream at all and it doesn’t come close to lightening up the coffee enough for someone who enjoys many cups a day. The first cruise we went on it was almost impossible to get cream even after asking. This cruise we were taken care of very well but had to ask every day in the buffet. I’m thinking this should be an easy fix, and would make many cruisers very happy.

Our waiter and assistant waiter in the dining room and the waiters in the buffet went out of their way to make sure we had everything we like. Mainly, we both use cream in our coffee and milk is not an option. The main dining room waiter had it on our table when we sat down every night once we asked her for the cream the first night. Awesome! But WHY do you not have real cream at the coffee stations? A small cost to keep coffee drinkers happy. I’m sure we’re not the only ones.
