Service and Staff

5 out of 5
OUR CABIN STEWARD WAS GREAT AND VERY HELPFUL CONSIDERING WE HAD TO CALL HIM ALMOST EVERY DAY AND THREE TIMES ON FRIDAY BECAUSE THE TOILET WASN'T WORKING PROPERLY. IT WAS VERY ANNOYING AND UNSANITARY TO CONSTANTLY HAVE A BROKE TOILET.
THE DINNING ROOM STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY. THEY INTERACTED WITH THE CHILDREN ALOT AND TRIED THEIR BEST TO ACCOMIDATE US.
