Review summary

The staff needs to be better trained in all areas. I did like not being pressured to have photos taken. I did not like having to make reservations each day for dinner in the general dining rooms. Overall we enjoyed the cruise.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
waiters could not get orders correct. room steward had to be called to make up room. Oliver in the Café Aloha bar was excellent and Pam the squirky/washy lady are a real asset to this ship as they were very helpful, friendly and informative. They made our day!
