Review summary

- overall, it was an ok cruise. would've preferred to see all the ports on itinerary but because of weather and emergency (something no one can control), we ended up spending most of the vacation at sea. - hard to get reservations to preferred restaurants because of restaurant size and seating capacity. ran out of lobsters at ocean blue (not sure how - is it poor planning?) - everything feels a la cart/upcharge
