Sail Date: Jun 2022

We had a balcony room with an EXCELLENT Cabin Attendant! We had my time Dining but---you need to "read between the lines. Luckily, we were able to reserve our time and table and walked right in every night but the first---TIP: reserve your table for the same time and your wait staff---no waiting this way! Wait staff was great---Very short staffed though! they will take care of you! Canceling Bonaire was a big bummer---no explanation was ever given.

We went to the beach when we could. On ship we stayed in the Solarium---Never ever saw any people checking on chairs that were previous reserved with towels. I watched chairs stay empty by the pool for 5 hours!!!!! NOT ENOUGH CHAIRS BY THE POOL OR WINDOWS! Never saw any staff move chairs for people! This was very disappointing! There were too many kids in this adult only area---running around/through and in strollers! Only saw one group with kids in strollers asked to leave by a lifeguard! No pool patrols for this adult only section!

You really had to go to the bar if you wanted a drink. Waiters took a long time---One did a bait & switch on me!
