You hit the nail on the head! You can argue about facts, but not about others' experiences. My dining room servers on two 4-night DCL Bahamas cruises (Wonder and Dream) were mediocre at best....

I have to assume you didn't have trip insurance, as that would've reimbursed you for the medical center bill.
