Great post, and could not agree more.

Next time you have a service issue on a ship, wonder why the waiter is not very good, or ask why there are not more crew to take care of you, you will know the answer.
I have often said on this and other forums, that service compared to the past is now lacking. However, because the great fantastic service of yesteryear is gone, this is "not"
the fault of the excellent wait staff or can steward who now serve us on board. They do their job as they are told to do it. However hard they work, and they do work hard, they deserve every penny and cent they earn. I always compliment their hard work and always tip accordingly.
