The lack of good customer service and their inability to resolve the one complaint we made while on board casts a shadow over my entire experience on this trip and with the cruise line in general. When we first entered our stateroom, we ... Read more

We chose this cruise as I had cruised with RCI on five previous occasions and never had cause to complain. Unfortunately I found this particular cruise fell short of the standards previously experienced on Majesty, Navigator, Adventure and ... Read more
