Thank you so much for your posting. We are booked on the POA for May 1 of 2005. I am confident that the problems will be solved and the way it sounds to me, most of the problems are from being short handed. Is that a good observation? and is the ship working to get the staff up to the level it is supposed to be? Also, I believe the main problem is the waiting time to the main restaurant. Is this time gettin less? we are a group from the First Baptist Church in Houston, Tx. and there are between 30 and 40 of us going to be on the ship. If you could just e-mail me with a few of your personal observations, I'd appreciate it. Thank you very much.
