We chose this cruise to enjoy some fun in the sun along the California Coast. The ship is beautiful and the service staff were excellent - friendly, efficient and professional. The crew that made the biggest hit were the exceptional bar manager (Eduard) and his bar staff. We got to know the bartenders working all over the ship. They were fun and entertaining and made a great drink! We had the drink package so it was also fun trying some new drinks and we even taught them a few more they could serve up (e.g. green tea shooter and shaft drinks). The bartenders are also very talented and would entertain us with their tricks. It makes a big difference when you get to know the service staff and they remember your name and your preferences too. This is where the bar staff went above and beyond. Definitely a highlight from the trip and great value for money!
