We had a great time on this cruise once we made friends.  Apparently the ship seems to have a problem seating us with others who also want not to sit alone.  Only when we complained did they accommodate us.  Otherwise, we would sit at a big table and right away they would remove the other settings so no one could sit with us.  We did this cruise last year and it was the same problem.  We were told that no one wanted to sit with us at the time we were there.  However, conducting our own survey, we found that not to be the case.  We spoke to others at big tables and they were told the same thing even though they too wanted to sit with others.  Not sure why this is a problem both last year and this year.

I haveto give a big kudos to the waitress Rita. She saw us waiting for our waiter what seemed like forever and on her own, came over to take out order even though we werent in her area. Rita is the best for noticing and acting above and beyond what she was required to do. Thank you.

smoking should not be allowed anywhere, and Spinnaker should have more seating. There never seemed to be enough.
