David and Andre, room stewards were great. We wanted for nothing and loved seeing their smiles every day. Widnyanna, James and Leanne were our dinner waiters. Always had good recommendations and again always smiling and pleasant. Waiters in Marketplace, lido deck, were always ready with a smile and food was wonderful and very diversified.
