We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the ship greatly, dining was extreamly nice with great service and menu. I do believe that a gratuity should not be automatic or it is not a gratuity. When the gratuity is automatic the service personnel tend to not give the extra to earn it. I understand that most people today are cheap and do not tip properly, but a gratuity should be a gratuity. If they do not make enough money that should be reflected in the original cost not a manditory gratuity, which is not a gratuity at all!
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: Great food\, smooth getting on and off the ship
Cons: with the new manditory gratuity a few of the staff\, Bar tenders specifically were rude and ignored me. If they had to earn a gratuity\, as it was established to be\, they would work hard to earn it.
