Dining Room service that felt like the crew didn't have a clue and never had done this before! Always pushing you on your scores for the survey..always reminding you of their names so that you could drop their names on the survey. Total mix up the first night with our reservation. We were suppose to eat with our friends (which had been pre-arranged!) and they gave our table to a man who screamed louder than we did.. They were a party of two at a table for four!! He was still screaming at the head waiter when we were finally seated some 20 minutes later. And why do we have formal night and they let people wear jean shorts ???? What happened to the “washy washy guy”? (the employee who reminded EVERYONE to wash their hands) You install wonderful fancy sinks as you enter the windjammer and NO one was using them!! The “washy washy guy needs his job back!
The food is the same ...every cruise.. I realize you are serving over 4000 people but it was like being at home with the same menu every week. Overall the food is good but boring and repeated again and again. It was my husbands 65th birthday and our friends had arranged with our waiter for a cake...the waiter forgot that day of his birthday but remembered the next night... too little too late!! The only exceptional meal we had was at Chops Grill where we had a lovely lunch served by Luis..A++++
Your meteorologist is seriously overworked because he didn't have any of our forecast right... In Bar Harbor, we dressed for his/her forecasted 57 degrees and it was more like 87... In addition to the meteorologist being overworked your ENTIRE staff looks tired and overworked.. New uniforms would make a huge difference and put a spring in their step.. Standouts were our room steward , Richard, our waiter Luis in Chops Grill, Paul at Starbucks and my husband attended a very good lecture in the fitness center.
The itinerary was great on this cruise..our weather was perfect and all in all we did have a nice cruise..Just little disappointments again along the way that would make a HUGE difference if they were corrected..

This we be the last time we upgrade to a balcony room. Last trip in December on the Anthem our balcony smelled like smoke because we were right above the outside smoking area. This time it smelled like diesel fuel..

Portland (Maine)Our excursion was cancelled ..it was too HOT for the horses. We did manage to book a city Tour once we left the ship. It was called The Real Portland Tour. The tour guide was a native and gave us a great tour of his city..Told us how to get to a great coffee shop and to go to a beer place called shipyards.View All 319 Portland (Maine) Cruise Port Reviews

Saint John (New Brunswick)St Andrews by the Sea was an exceptional excursion .. quaint little town with lots of shops and restaurant. Too bad no where in the description did it tell you it was a 1.5 hour bus ride each way..so we had a very short time in St Andrew's.. 3 hours on a bus and 1.5 hours in town.. We had a fabulous lunch at Hotel Kennedy! More time would have been great.. If you go make sure you stop at Tall Tom's ice cream!View All 12,810 Saint John (New Brunswick) Cruise Port Reviews
