no need to feel guilty at all and thks. I thought everyone was getting worked up about nothing other than an enforced bigger tip here. Seems like we were correct.
Foods just fine in the Dining room and if you want to pay a big tip for the Great Service that one gets in their spcialty restaurants ...go for it. We enjoyed the service but frankly on the occasion we were there the food was lacking compared to the main room. Happens in the best of restaurants I guess.
So...... should we not tip the main room guys for the meal we missed when we were at the Specialty restaurant....????!!!!!!!! Life aboard was too simple when we just had one great mealtime and place...
