THIS WAS OUR 6TH CRUISE, COMPARED TO THE OTHERS THIS WAS A DISSAPOINTMENT. FIRST THE FOOD WASN'T AS GOOD AS IT USED TO BE. PORTIONS WERE SMALLER. THE WAIT STAFF USED TO BE RIGHT ON TOP OF THINGS, THIS TIME YOU HAD TO FLAG THEM DOWN TO GET A GLASS OF WATER REFILLED. SAME THING WITH THE SERVERS ON DECK. FIRST YOU HAD TO FIND THEM, THEN TRY AND GET THIER ATTENTION TO GET YOU A DRINK. I FOUND THEY STAFF IN THE BOUTIQUES SNOBBISH, NOT WANTING TO HELP YOU, ONE WAS SITTING ON THE FLOOR LOOKING THROUGH A DRAWER, SHE WOULD NOT GET UP TO LET ME PASS. I HAD PICKED UP A EYELINER TO PURCHASE, SHE FOLLOWED ME AROUND LIKE I WASN'T GOING TO PAY FOR IT. MY HUSBAND AND I SMOKE - YOU CAN SMOKE IN YOUR ROOM, NOT THE BALCONY, YOU CAN SMOKE IN THE CASINO, ON CERTAIN DAYS. YOU CAN SMOKE ON BY THE POOLS , ONLY BY ONE POOL AND ONLY ON ONE SIDE. WE WOULD ORDER COFFEE AND FRUITE TO BE DELIVERED EVERY MORNING AT 8:30 am, WE ALSO PUT THE "DO NOT DISTURB" SIGN OUT, BUT THAT DIDN'T MATTER, THEY WOULD UNLOCK THEY DOOR WITH THIER PASS KEY AND COME IN. (WE ALSO HEARD THIS FROM SEVERAL OTHER PEOPLE ON THE SAME CRUISE) OUR CURE WAS TO BACK THE ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIR AGAINST THE DOOR.
ON THE PLUS SIDE, I USE A MOTORIZED WHEEL CHAIR THEY WERE VERY HELPFULL GETTING ME AND THE CHAIR OFF AND ON THE SHIP.
