I had a wonderful time EXCEPT when we attempted to purchase drinks. The waiter wasted 1/2 hr attempting to use their system. I finally demanded he call a supervisor who told him to write the drinks up. Very frustrating. After that everything was WONDERFUL....Food drinks..seats..the trip.

Had a really good time. Food was good and staff was friendly. They even played good music. Only thing was the drinks that we ordered separately from the buffet took an extremely long time to come.

The views was definitely beautiful, we got to learn some history. The hospitality was very poor, we sat at our table for more than 1/2 hour and no one came to welcome us or ask what we needed. I decided to order drinks with the scan bar code and the tip was included and then asked to pick up drinks at bar. The drinks were weak and my Long Island Ice tea was lemon down🤦🏾‍♀️. My order was paid through my Apple Pay, but when we finally dock, and on leaving the ship then we’re were yelled by one of the crew to return because we did not pay our tab.. Wow now mind you the same waiter that was told twice that we needed him at the table was now appearing for the tab we paid for how embarrassing. He appears after the end to get paid and his excuse was, he was busy with other tables. Service needs to be more professional and the older bartender (male) does not know how to mix drinks. The food staff was also confuse in arranging the table and there was not a variety of food. Mimosa should have been added for free to every ticket purchase. I want to thank Alex who apologized for the situation. If I should take this cruise again I hope that our experience will be different.

The boat was beautiful. The Dj / tour guide,The dancing 💃 and the pictures .The food was not all I expected neither was the servers. The fish had no flavor to it and the chicken didn’t look like chicken but it had a flair to it. The veggies were delicious.Workers need to trained in customer service.Don’t put the new servers out until they’re fully trained and don’t embarrass them out loud when they don’t get it right.
