From the moment I booked the ticket I was a little confused about the whole process. After finally reading the fine print I tried to call the number provided but was unable to get through as it was out of hours re-opening Monday (our cruise was a Saturday) This meant that we had not choice about our meal selection of entre and desert. The staff were happy to assist with moving us to the lower deck when we were cold on the top level, and were very pleasant and friendly. We did however feel neglected at various times, and due to the cold seafood at the start of our dinner, our birthday celebrations soon became a matter of wishing we could have had a warm night to enjoy, or have been able to make selections for the birthday girl. The main meal of chicken was very well prepared and served, and the mini deserts were enjoyed. When booking make sure you ring and get your order taken though.
