I requested a small table after the first evening. I was placed at a round 8 person table and it took too long to be served. I left after 2.5 hours, didn't wait for dessert to be served. The small 2-4 person table is perfect and I had very nice people to visit with. The staff did a great job.

Don't ask for a larger table because they will not give it to you even if it's available. Never been told "no" so many times on a cruise. If they say no dinner reservations that you want are available, book another cruise line.

Unlike previous cruises, there was no captain's party/cocktail hour OR a complimentary bottle of wine. On this ship not even a bottle of water was complimentary.

DO NOT do any time dinning!!! ALWAYS a wait. If you do late dining you will NEVER get to the show. If you have a unique diet, like no dairy or gluten, DO NOT tell them, as it takes them FOREVER to get you things, and they will simply not bring a dish (not offer a substitute) if there is an issue.

We had as you wish dining but after the first night in the Main Dining Room I gave up (the wait staff had no idea if there was any dairy in any of the meals and had no options). Ate at Tamarind and it was amazingly good, highly recommend it.

Our cabin was on 8th deck below the Lido restaurant and was noisey from the restaurant above. Suggest being on 7 or 6th deck to eliminate the noise.

A wonderful ship for seniors who enjoy cruising. I found the Spa attendants to not be very helpful. There was not any attendant present in the mineral therapy spa. The fee to have your nails done was much overpriced and unreasonable in my opinion.

ON YOUR SECOND DAY TAKE TIME TO TOUR THE WHOLE SHIP. IT WILL TAKE A FEW HOURS BUT IT'S WORTH THE TIME. FROM THE CROWS NEST ON DECK 11 TO THE MANHATTAN DINING ROOM ON DECK 2, THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO. COOKING DEMOS, POOLSIDE ACTIVITIES, LATE NIGHT DINING. IT HELPS TO PLAN ACTIVITIES IN ADVANCE
