The ship itself I understand is getting ready for an update...and it does need that. At our table in the dining room. the lamp behind our table did not have a lamp shade on it... just a light bulb. It was not very attractive for one thing but the light bulb was blinding. We asked for a shade but they just turned the light off. We were told that they did not have a shade to put on it but had ordered one but it would not be one during our cruise. Other lamp shades close to us were burned... That needs attention! The waiter and his staff were wonderful...excellent attention.
The cabin was always clean and neat. The common areas were also clean but again, ready for an update.
The food was really good in the dining room and the Lido food was good, but the "cattle call" for food was awful. I don't like all the pushing and shoving...to many people at one time eating. We didn't know at the beginning of the cruise you could also eat breakfast and lunch in the dining room. After we foun that out, that is where went. Lido as just a good experience.
