Ship Facts: Royal Clipper Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Royal Clipper Deck Plans
Management is responsible
First of all we had a great time and the crew was terrific. The cabins and common areas were always spotless.

HOWEVER, there were four complaints that many of the passengers had that according to the crew "only management could solve."

1. Although cold water was always available on the main deck the majority also wanted ice tea. That proved to be impossible as "management" had to make all decisions regarding any beverage change.

2. In spite of the fact that were no middle eastern passengers the Arab TV channels ran constantly. The crew said that was because a large portion of the crew were from that area. The crew does not pay the bills. After a near revolt by the passengers it was turned off and we all went to the very good bar to celebrate.

3. Rabbit. The last night dinner heavily featured rabbit which few ate and most did not want at all. The answer was again "management." Otherwise the food was excellent at all times.

4. The steel band came on board for less than one hour. It was great but the answer was that we had arrived in port late and something about a customs issue.

Although the passengers tried to find the ever elusive "management", he stayed well hidden.

But having said that, it was a great cruise and we are going again.
