First time with Royal Caribbean, but found the overzealous and non- meaningful continual greetings from the crew most irritating. The public areas of the ship were in need of maintenance, and the hull at waterline was rusting.
The stateroom with balcony was good and kept clean by a very pleasant attendant.
The menu's for my-time dining were repetitive and boring and obviously designed to persuade you to pay extra for one of the optional restaurants. The continual offer of 'yum yum time' sweet menu's on which I usually ended up with cheese and biscuits as nothing else appealed, was nauseating. The cost of wines and drinks was outrageous.
Custom services were unhelpful and quite rude.
The theatre shows were mediocre but the other musician were quite good.
The ship's tours in port were way overpriced, but it was easy to arrange your own once ashore.
As can be gathered we have had far better cruises on much smaller ships and are More
unlikely to use Royal Caribbean again. Less
