Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Waiters and room steward were great. I did however have a bad experience with a lady named Anita at the shore excursions desk who was very rude. Also had trouble with some of the staff in the casino who didn’t seem to know how to count or no rules.

After 25 cruises the worst I’ve ever went through. Had to wait an hour and 20 minutes in line to get off because the foreigners wouldn’t answer their page All in all we had a good cruise besides the few staff that were not very good
