Here's a miracle cure "Pardon me, I'd like to order a glass of wine please. Thank you"

Agreed. DH used to work for consumer protection, so he tends to be rather assertive when people aren't doing their jobs. He also bends over backwards to be kind to the wait staff.

We've had beverage issues on our cruises. On a dream spring break cruise a couple years ago I tried to order a drink of the day to have with the appetizer and then a glass of wine to go w/ my entree. By the time the cocktail arrived, so had my entree so I ended up skipping the wine.

On our Thanksgiving cruise this past year, we were a party of 8- my family of 4 and my sister's family of four. We split a wine package but the 4 adults sometimes wanted different bottles. This confused our beverage server to no end and it would take forever to get the orders correct.

For our next cruise I think we might just get a glass of wine from one of the bars and bring it with us.

I will say our best servers were on on our Magic cruise to Canada last year. They were the guys that did magic tricks, made napkin hats, etc. So for us it's been hit or miss when it comes to MDR service.
