Since my last RC cruise 3 yrs ago.... Sit down dinners in My Time dining - food quality is of a lesser quality, food choices in Windjammer the same for 7 days. When cruising, no space available anywhere! I would definitely reconsider booking on such a big diverse boat. On the plus side, there were more shows/entertainment/music venues which is why the rating of 9 vs a 7. The only option for solo cruisers to meet were not honored/recognized by staff so we didn't even get admitted due to families taking up the tables in the Rising Tide bar. The Staff was still pretty amazing everywhere, and you didn't have to wait for a drink anywhere for more than a few minutes. We had a cabin overlooking Central Park which was very nice. Housekeeping was phenomenal as usual. In all fairness, this is probably a great family cruise but not so much for singles & friends. It was nice to see once though. Read Less

The ship is as advertised. Clean, great shows, plenty to do. Surprisingly, the boat did not feel crowded with over 6500 guests on board. Truly special. However, the service leaves a lot to be desired. The food was average at best. The wait staff was not very attentive in any of the restaurants we ate. The worst part was the lack of direction or support given at the ports of call. In short, once you were off the boat you were on your own, even if you were on a Royal Caribbean sponsored excursion. Many times we were left to wander (with 3 young kids) trying to find the right van, bus, etc with no RC employee in sight. Beware- RC (unlike other cruise lines) will give their employee name badges to employees of local vendor companies. This leaves you with false impression you are dealing with someone who is vested to help you. For those that enjoy the service touches of a Disney, Princess, etc note that this is a big step down.

This was the first time we were taking our kids on a cruise (ages 11 & 9) - we really wanted to make sure there was plenty of entertainment. We did sign them up for Adventure Ocean but neither of them were very interested. I have to say that we seem to be the anomaly as everyone I talk to raves about it. So we must be the unusual. The feedback my son gave (9 yo) - games were fun but he thought they would play on the actual sports deck versus just in the room. He’s interested in sports and video games - so he thought there would be a video game tournament not just targeted to teenagers (same for sports). Maybe they did this, but we didn’t go back. My daughter is 11 going on 15 and seemed to be smack in the middle of too old or too young. That said, they LOVED the cruise. The pools, slides, shows, game shows, family comedy night, they were never bored! Our cabin was roomy enough and no one ever really felt cramped at all. We had a balcony over the boardwalk which was great! People watching at it’s best and you can even catch the entertainment. My only complaint would be the announcements seemed to get loud at 3AM and woke me up. We checked out the art auction and found a piece we liked but it was just too pricey. That’s okay - it happens. They did keep inviting us to a VIP event and even called at 8AM one morning. That was a tad annoying but they were so friendly and truly not pushy! The WindJammer was great for us. My kids had control of their own plates and were happy with the options. We did figure out the busy times and stayed away during those moments. The dessert bar night was bananas but the kids enjoyed the craziness. The Main dining room was great. Loved the food options and service! The staff seem a little shy in there but it was unobtrusive so it was nice. Our only recommendation for improvement to RC is to provide age ranges on all activities. It was clearly noted when it was 18+, however we searched for open basketball and volleyball games for our kids and they were told they were too young. There was a “Family Hot Shot” tournament that we made sure to be ready for at the published time only to get there and their schedule books notes a 1/2 hour earlier. Truly crushing to be honest. It was over by the time we got there. So something targeted toward open ages and then honoring the published times would be great. The only other thing I would note is it seemed hard to find garbage cans. Maybe we just always have trash - I have no idea but it felt like we carried it around until we found the next can. So weird. It was So clean though so they are doing something right! Our kids loved the ice cream machine too! Just a blast! Enjoy the moment and relax into all of it. Read Less
