We have gone on more than a dozen cruises all together on Royal Caribbean, Princess, Celebrity, and Carnival (ugh), but this was the very best cruise we have ever taken.  The ship was clean, the food excellent, the staff accomidating and entertainment terrific.  We found the serving time at the dinning room was slow.  Dinner took 1 1/2 hours but the food was presented in superb fashion and was extremely flavorful.  The choices were abundant andit was hard to chose just one. 


I am dissapointed that most of the cruise lines have gone  to the automatic tipping put on the bill.  It takes away the incentive for staff to do better, but because they know they will get the same doing good work or bad you see no excellence.  I enjoy rewarding good service and upset to have to give bad service a tip.


The ports of stop were bad, but that is not the fault of the cruise line.  Again, over all, This was one of the best cruises that my wife and I have ever taken.
