The check-in process for this cruise was great. We arrived about 11:00 A.M. and were on the ship within a few minutes of arrival. The check-in in was swift and well organized.
I was a bit disappointed with this cruise - mainly with the entertainment throughout the ship. The weather was uncooperative on this cruise and the crew did very little to step up and entertain it's guests. There were many people who did not get off the ship at the ports of call because of the poor weather. The staff did not add any additional entertainment options to compensate for this.
I felt the Schooner Bar had a very poor singer who was less then exciting. On other cruises, the Schooner bar was a place to go and sing along with the piano player. The person who was performing here was not engaging and definitely not on key. In the other show lounges there few options of types of music or entertainment.
The main show lounge had wonderful entertainment. There was a variety of shows with several different kinds of entertainment. My only wish is RCL would find some other type of headliner singer then Motown. The juggler and comedy acts were great.
The ship was in pretty good shape. Everything was kept up well and clean.
We really enjoyed our time in the Crown Lounge during the time it was set aside for it's Diamond members. The staff in the Diamond lounge was exceptional and went out of their way to make sure everyone was having a good time and had whatever they needed. The entire cruise staff was friendly and helpful.
