The Servive was good.  Especially "Peter", "Puto Yoga", & "Jerome". They get 5 Stars!  One problem was with "Russian" in the Main Dining room. We were a 'Party of Six' and had requested to sit together... he said there was no Table left for 6 so we were split up ( 4 went to one Table & 2 went to another ) ...The request was made in advance, not as we walked in.  Guess what?  The 2 were seated at a Table for 8 and there were 4 empty seats!

    As for Gratuities, it would be better if the automatic $24.00 a day Gratuity Charge was placed on the Cost of the Cruise rather than on the On-Board expense Voucher. The Company would not lose any money and the Staff might receive additional Gratuity.  Sure, some would not leave additional tips, however, many would.
