Review summary

Enjoyed the cruise although i was left somewhat confused when I walked through the buffet towards the outdoor dining room on July 13th wearing an American flag dress and I heard a kitchen crew member say, "happy July 4th mame" while looking away and making absolutely no eye contact...not sure if she was being sarcastic but i simply replied,"I'm American all year long" and since she wouldn't even look at me i just kept walking. Also, while returning from a port my bracelets triggered the metal detector machine and while waiting for the lady to approch me with the hand held machine i raised my arms to the side and shook my hips twice towards my husband who was in line behind me and she scolded me by saying, "this is not a joke!"... Seemed to me like the crew on the Spirit had better people skills then the crew on the Gem
