Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Ships main dining was chaotic.Service was disorganized,slow and dinig room nosiy.Food is brought up in carts from a different area causing carts to be everywhere.Had carts lined up with dirty dishes next to my table.Service was slow,It seemed it was understaffed.Windjammer-always a disaster .Understaffed,tables full of dishes no where to sit.Jaimes Olvier-Italian with a twist was terrible.No comparison to Giovanni that is authentic Italian.Coastal kitchen was fabulous-dined there every night due to having a suite.
