I have to give it to RCCL, embarkation and debarkation are so easy in Baltimore. Everything is so organized and smooth. Although the ship is going to be revamped in Dec, it was in pretty good shape. We ate mostly in the Windjammer and the food was pretty good, just not very hot. The specialty stations were very good. I wish RCCH would have more to do during the day and not have all the fun stuff so late at night, karaoke is at 10pm. if you dont want to take ballroom dance class, trivia or play bingo, you pretty much are screwed for daytime activities. We have found it to be the same the last couple of cruises. The one time we managed to get to karaoke the books with the songs, have very little to choose from. The shows were great however you had to go to the theatre an hour before showtime to get a seat. People were almost fighting about saving seats and the RCCL staff member said it will be better after they re=do the ship in Dec...well that did not solve the problem then, and the first show was at 845p, why not make it earlier.
If you visit Antigua, do not take the Antiguan Experience for your excursion, what a joke and it was expensive. They took us on a beat up old van to a lady's house that had been there many years and told us about history, drove past the pineapple farm and slowed down to take a picture, did not even stop. the lunch on the beach was okay....this excursion should have been about $19, it was such a disappointment.
The cabin staff and bartenders and staff in the restaurants were all great. all in all it was a good cruise
