For part of cruise was the stops and be able to get off the ship. Love the water.

Our room attendant was fantastic as well our dining attendants.

Express exit in the AM was wonderful.

What needs improvement:

The morning wait staff- need to talk to each other and help the guests.---Restaurant on  3rd deck

Fix the plumbing issues in our son's room.

Compensate for not being to go where the plan was- understand the safety issues but it was a real disappointment.

Stop nickel and dining everything-30 dollars for a small bag of dirty laundry.

Have a first time cruisers seminar on the first day.

Have more than one soft serve ice cream machine.

Room attendant wonderful/Maintenance crew-not so much-didn't repair son's bathroom in 3340.
