Yes, Dave...I like the idea of servers in the buffet. Not only would there be fewer germs passed around, but it would also have the effect of speeding up the process so the rude people ahead of me in line couldn't dish their vegetables one tiny piece at a time!
I've been on a couple RC cruises where the staff was serving and I loved it!
Being a doctor, and more specifically a pathologist who has been the director of microbiology labs, I notice so many things that could be done differently, I have to not think about it or I will go crazy. For whatever reason, out of everything though, it just seems that with all of those passengers coming back from port, probably with dirty hands, that that would be a good place to start changing practices.
Oh well, maybe someone is paying attention to these forums and will make some changes.
