Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2014
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Itinerary and departure time were changed and we received no notification from Royal Caribbean. If it had not been for the Cruise Critic forum we would have been totally in the dark. Thank you Cruise Critic!

Dining room head waiter (early sitting) approached us, party of 4 at an 8-top table, and asked us if we were together as he was trying to seat a party of 6. The table next to us also had a party of 4, a family sailing together, of course. We suggested combining the two parties of 4 at the 8-top. Why didn't he think of that? We melded perfectly with the family of four and the party of 6 went to the vacant table. Doesn't the head waiter have a computer? Doesn't he have any common sense?

The cruise was fine as was the rest of the staff.
