Can't Understand What All the Complaining is About!

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

We booked this vacation over a year and a half ago, and we were very much anticipating a good time.......we were NOT dissapointed by any means. We have read many negative reviews about this ship and the service, and to be quite honest, we can't seem to find what all the cry babies are, well..... crying about.
These are some of the "things" that we read before sailing (and our response to them.)
...Avoid the windjammer at all costs...too crowded, unfriendly service...
We NEVER had a problem finding a seat,(and we went at LUNCHTIME). We also were always met with friendly service.
...Elevators always never available...Never a problem, and we took them at all times of the day or night.
...Main Dining Room food was terrible....IT WAS GREAT!! and in fact we NEVER found it necessary to NOT go there!
...Staff is unfriendly....We were always treated kindly and in many cases by our names.
...No Quiet places...Not an issue, and we FOUND those places of More silence.
...Lounge chair hogs......Always able to find a lounger....they are EVERYWHERE.

This has been our 14 cruise so far, so we pretty much know how it goes, but I simply cannot figure out what all the complaining is about..
I mean, come on......nothing in life is 100%...you roll with the punches.
We had a very enjoyable time on this cruise, the food was wonderful, the staff was more than friendly, and the shows were terrific.
I think that some people just love to complain about anything.
Don't take all the negative things that you are bound to read, to heart.
Treat people as YOU would expect to be treated.
Those cry-babies need to stay at home! Less
