Just back off the Adventure and there are big changes and not for the better
I really enjoyed the Ship, Portofinos was brilliant. The service was great Embarkation a breeze but didn't enjoy the 10 children under the age of 8 in the conceige lounge every night so we stopped going in there .......... Couldn't move for strollers.
Although we were in a Grand Suite and are Diamond Plus the conceige lounge was not for us. You could clearly see that the children were bored and were crying and screaming and the Conceige was very busy dealing with them .
We decided to go to the over spill lounge for suite guests which again had children running around playing on the piano and screaming.
So we decided to go to the Diamond lounge for some final peace and quiet only to find that a young Mother with a two year old child and yet another stroller was shouting at the bar server demanding to be served a drink because she was stating that she is in a suite and she is also a Diamond member and that there was no room for her to sit in the Conceige lounge and no room for her and her husband and child to sit in the over spill lounge because that was also too busy so although technically the child should not be allowed in the Diamond area the barman gave in because of the fuss the Mother was making. The then said child decided to lie and crawl all over the floor.
RCI should find an alternative for children being allowed in bars that serve alcohol it is clear to see that this is not going to work. RCI will lose many loyal and suite guests as a result.
I really am considering looking at alternative cruise lines
Disembarcation was easy but we had to wait for 25 minutes in line for a taxi. Some people had to wait a lot longer.
