Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise (our 9th)-

Great staff, good slick service generally and the ship was in absolutely fine condition given it is about to be dry docked and refurbed.

Main complaint was around chaos every evening in MDR and menu choice which was pretty poor. For the first time every cruising we chose to got Ocean View one evening as the starters consisted of 4 soups and the ever available prawn cocktail and snails. Where you used to have the standard "always avialble" section at the bottom now those are included to make it look like there re more choices. Also the soup/salad course gone and rolled into appetizer choices ( so with soup, salad, snails and prawns basically only ever two choices that changed materially) . Likewise the main course pretty poor too with variations on the same thing with a different veg/carb element eg often often two steak dishes. The service was good in terms of the personnel but the actual number of them and training left a lot to be desired. in the 9 nights we ate there we never once got a table that was fully properly set- always plates, glasses or something missing.
