Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The Dining Room was top-notch. Having to battle the Lido crowds was tolerable but not the best. If they had crew to help find a vacant table, especially when you have people with mobility issues -- would help tremendously.

Lido Restaurant

You have to battle the crowds and some rude people. We had two people in our party with some mobility issues. It was hard to find a vacant table for 4, and it was disheartening to head toward a table only to see someone run ahead of you to grab it. Having a crew member to help find a table would help.
