Can the dining be more disgusting?
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
the service i would say was good. the wait staff and cabin attendants were wonderful. however, i have never been so put off by staff at the front desk as i have by these nasty people. they were rude. i travel with friends. 3 cabins of women friends. we are not couples and as i'm the agent who actually books us, i make it known from the beginning, when i book and in follow ups. please someone tell me the reason on board credit should be a hassel to split. after specifying when booked i went to the desk on day 1 to make sure it had been done. told to come back on day 2, did so, and we were still arguing on day 9. this isn't rocket science. and such attitude.
the entertainment venues were better than i remember. although i don't love ice shows, they were available to those who do enjoy them. good karaoke, and the women piano player was quite good. what i didn't appreciate was the fact that there was no info on what the entertainment actually was for the evening. a general term for comedian, to me is not a juggler. got to the show and a guy is tossing balls in the air. left there quickly. the ventriloquist much the same. put in a blurb on what the entertainment is for the evening.
a couple of things that kind of got to me. this is the first time i have had to go up to pool deck to get a towel to take to the beach. they are usually available as you leave ship. if they insist on doing it this way, why not let everyone in on the secret so that we all didn't have to go back upstairs.
although i never say never, i would be hard pressed to recommend RCC to any friends or clients who ask my opinion. it's gotten that bad. Less
