This cruise was very good, with a few hick ups. The itinerary was excellent. The ports were great. The ship was beautiful. The staff other then a few were exceptional. The food was very good for the first seven out of ten days. After that it fizzled, some of the meat in the horizon court buffet was looking and tasting like it was reheated several times. But there salad and fruit was always very fresh. Same goes for the Symphony dinning room. The one problem that was not acceptable was, one of us went to the burger place on deck for a hotdog and watch as the cook picked up raw chicken with tongs and the proceeded to use the same tongs to pick up his hotdog and put it on the bun. Needless to say he did not eat this. As previously stated the staff was excellent, in the symphony dinning room Milo and the other waiters worked hard and very friendly. Unfortunately the management was a little overbearing, part of the charm of cruising is speaking to the staff and finding were they are all from. As there is less staff now then on our last cruise this was hard to do. Jeffary our room steward was amazing. The bar staff was exceptional. Especially Anton and Mary-Joy. All in al I would recommend this cruise. We met and made some wonderful friends and had a wonderful time.
