    There’s was just a waiting period for seating because my aunt had a wheelchair and they had to rearrange the seating area to accommodate her. Once we got seated if it wasn’t for the waitress or ship assistant Jade (Pinkett) that’s what we called her she helped us with everything we needed. She was such a joy which made us happy no matter what we had to go through. We had ordered drinks and Shrimp Cocktails, which took awhile to get, but Jade was there to help, she had no control of the orders but she had managed to get our drinks, she did everything to satisfied us. Than finally the shrimp cocktails was replaced with a Crab Dip because they had ran out. The food was good and the DJ played nice music. Otherwise my aunt was happy just celebrating her 84th birthday and she had enjoyed the experience just being on the boat.
