Review summary

I sent the request for an embarkation wheelchair/assistance over to access desk. Yet no one was available. I had several rude staff members. 2 rude staff members at the buffet serving ice cream of all things. The guest services desk mixed up my brothers birthday celebration. Not only did they mix it up, they CHARGED HIM, instead of my sister. It took 6 days (until the last night of my cruise) for them to change the name on my room phone from C. McKenzie to B. Jackson. That is absolutely unacceptable. The only highlight of my cruise was Colin and his service at Taste. Give that man a promotion and a raise! Oh btw, I got sick on the cruise from all the cigarette smoke. good grief. casino's SHOULD NOT BE in the middle of a ship. And more than that they put the smoking area by the pool next to the kids pool. That makes no sense.

We ate in the Taste Dining Room every night in Colin B's section. He is excellent! He gave the best service on the ship. However the main dining room menus were MEH.. Needed just a tad bit more variety

Long Lines. We have Lime so we wanted to be last. However our 9:45 turned into 10:30 because the ship was backed up. Yet they kicked us out of O'Sheehans
