What happened to the food?

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Well we expected to be wowed by the food as usual but some draconian force moved the good stuff up to the for pay sites.

Tough beef is hard on an old geezer. Another ploy to save $ is to group the high class items into one night - then the chops, wellington and Crawfish parts go farther.

Our table staff were either poorly trained or unhappy to not be "upstairs" but we did get them trained for their next cruise. Their supervisor was not doing his job but he did come and talk our arm off from time to time.

The ship was magnificent, clean and well operated. Saw lots of crew of all levels and enjoyed them all.

The buffet was one of the best we have seen but did seem to feature a little too much English fare. You do realize that english food is a world-wide joke, right? Also noted that the head cook was from the UK so I sort of expected the pathetic food. Have the corporate toads try it out on a cruise sometime - bet they would make some changes More fast.

Embarkation was the most fouled up, dangerous frustating experience ever. Less
