Cruising Culture Shock: Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review by Dotypet
Overall Member Rating
Cruising Culture Shock
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: San Diego
No table More assignment when we reported for dinner that evening. Again, they blamed this on our travel agent. A travel agent assiging the table you're going to sit at? I don't think so. When we finally assigned another table, it wasn't even in dining room, but a small ante-room where, we were told, officers ate their breakfast and lunches. Staff fine, company fine, but it was also the room where waiters bussed the dirty dishes from main dining room.
Food in dining room . . not like the old days. Onion and Brie tart as a main course choice? Chops and Portofino were great.
I miss the days when their were waiters everywhere on decks, around the pools, carrying trays of exotic drinks . . .for free . . . fresh fruit and breakfast buffets out on deck, etc. Now, we felt nickled and dimed to death.
And have you seen the prices on the excusions??
Guess cruising is not for us anymore. I had hoped it would be, but we'll stick with our escorted tours. Less
