We were very happy with all aspects of cruise with just a few exceptions. Dining room. We were instructed to use a hand sanitizer as we entered the dining room which was good. However, the bread was sliced by customers and most times did not bother to use the towel just bare hands. The cheese tray which was beautiful with many cheeses and fruits was also unprotected with people cutting and picking us with there bare hands. I will say the evening meal was always wonderful. Our biggest complaint as it was for almost everyone was the expectation of buying bottled water or wine with lunch and dinner. We had free water , coffee and tea for breakfast, free coffee and tea for lunch. No water. No water, coffee or tea for dinner. If you take medication or have a dry mouth or difficulty swallowing too bad. Buy a bottle of water. This was a deliberate ploy to sell water and wine. The last problem with the dining room was the candelabra over table 19 and 13. The fibration was so bad at times it was impossible to talk. We had no complaint with the rest of the ship or staff. All was clean with friendly staff and a terrific tour director. Too bad our experience was tainted by the dining room
