  1. Does the buffet reopen right after the lifeboat drill?
  2. One reviewer mentioned that the fitness center doesn’t open until 7:30. Say it isn’tso!
  3. Another reviewer mentioned that cocktails and soft drinks are provided by the sommelier in the MDR. Is this correct? Does it work well enough? On my previous cruises on other lines there have typically been bar waiters.

The buffet will open after the Life Boat Drill, as it is one of the meeting places during the drill and it would get complicated with drillers and diners in the same place at the same time.

The Fitness center opens at 6 am.

The Sommelier takes drinks orders in all the Britannia Dining Room and Club, and in the Grills. I suspect they are paid on commission and they are very efficient at getting you your drink.

In the buffet you’re served by bar waiters, and it’s far less efficient than being served by a sommelier. You have to wait for one to come and take your drink, which is a lengthy one, and the it’s another long wait for them to bring your drink. Being served by a sommelier is far more efficient (and it isn’t a longer wait for them to bring soft drinks when you’re on the drinks package, either).
