Review summary

CELEBRATED OUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY. THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS FRIENDS BACK HOME PAID AND ORDERED ANNIVERSARY DECORATIONS FOR ROOM. WAS TO BE A SURPRIZE. RC FAILED TO DECORATE AND THEY HAD TO CONTACT ME AND I HAD TO GO TO GUEST SERVICES TO ASK THEM TO REFUND THEIR MONEY. DISAPPOINTED ME. OTHERWISE, THE BEST CRUISE I'VE EVER BEEN ON.

Specialty restaurants excellent. Main dining staff was fantastic after we switched tables. Buffet not as good as it could be....food often not hot. Bars, except the wine bar were fun to be around. Wine bartender very unfriendly.
