Noone has to go through the buffet to get to the pool on the Star, I guess that the shortest way to get to the pool from your cabin was through the buffe but you could have taken another way!
I don´t like the hand sanitisers but if they prevent people from getting ill, they are great! Especially if virus had broken out on the ship, it´s important to use them!
Please remember that I don´t argue about the food, your opinion is that it was bland and boring in its presentation and I don´t argue about that!
Your opinion is the right opinion for you.
