This was a very beautiful and clean ship but there was just a few little things that bothered us: There were no urinals in any Mens room! (weird)
The layout in the spa/steamroom/sauna area was odd and awkward.
(the mixing and crisscrossed paths of male/female, changerooms and showers was embarrassing for me) The showers were too small and not enough of them.
The employees name tags were hard to read. (small print)
Restrooms were poorly marked and hard to find.
Stairwells were confusing. Beautiful and clean but they all looked the same. It would be easier if they distinguished front of the ship from the back with different colours or artwork also for deck level as well.
The main dining room was way too crowded. the banquette seating was hard to get in and out of and made it hard for the waiters to serve food and collect dishes etc. Also one waiter per table was'nt enough. The poor boy tried but without an assistant to help keep up with bread and water and clearing of dishes, the delivery of the different coarses was sporatic and unpredictable. The overcrowding was even more dificult for him!!
