Also, did you receive half a dinner when you returned from excursion? I never was on a ship that didn't have a alternative buffet instead of dining room for people coming back from excursions. We would have gladly gone to the buffet instead of rushing to make dining room. Also, was yours among the 27 missing pieces of baggage that is now in Rome? Sorry, this was unexcusable and the assistant maitre de thought so too. Ours told us he was going to look into this unexcusable treatment. He told us there was no communication with the dining room from the excursion staff. We were told that dinner would be 7:30 instead of 6:15 when our excursions left two hours late and not to worry about rushing; but the dining room staff was never told. Hey, let's call a spade a spade. This was not their first time on this itinerary. I had the first clue as to what to expect on this cruise when I asked at the Guest Relations desk "what time we would be passing the Rock of Gibralter" and not one person new what the Rock of Gibralter was. They said "could you spell that for me?" Let's get real!!!
