Default Re: Food Poisoning on 2/18 Mille cruise?

Was on 2/18 cruise also...we chose Monday night to eat in the Olympic. Maybe the timing was right. We never experienced any issues on the cruise other than too many kids ( out fault, Presidents week ). I feel sorry for the folks that suffered but we experienced wonderful food and service. We had a table for two on the lower level and our staff headed by Nenad was the best. In retrospect, we were a little disappointed the dress code seemed to be largely ignored...too many shorts and even jeans on inappropriate nights....looking forward to our next cruise.Donna wrote:
