My friend and I thought this would be a good cruise to enjoy for our first time. They were rude, didn't resolve ANY issues while on board. Our plugs in did not work, we had no AC. Made arrangements before setting sail to have dinner time at the same time each night and they let someone else have our seat. They then made us wait till they sat others and finally pulled up a TWO person table for my friend and I by the dirty dishes and server station. Their staff was friendly in different areas but for the majority they were rude and we did not like them. Our room attendant didn't help us with anything but to come clean in which she walked in two different times while we were still in getting ready. The one time we finally called and asked for ice they brought it to us about a hour later. Will not be cruising Royal Caribbean again. Read Less

Book another boat!! This one is smelly and moldy. The sewer backs up and makes the boat smell plus the mildew odor in certain parts (even the dining area) is unbearable. I don't think I have had worse food anywhere else. It was not edible. We had 6 people and none of us could eat the food. The buffet is awful. They run out of dishes and don't replenish them. The Starbucks is even awful. The worker there doesn't know what he's doing. The beds are extremely uncomfortable. One of the people with me had to take pain relievers because her back got so terribly out of whack from the bed. There is no late night food to eat other than the worst pizza ever. That is the ONLY option for late night. It was raw on the bottom with toppings that had zero flavor. We love pizza and couldn't eat this. We thought it was awful that there was nothing else to eat at night. It took us almost 4 hours to get off the boat. There is no organization at all and we stood in line for hours just to get off. The spa is located under the kids club and the noise makes the spa feel like you are in a daycare. There were hardly any shows to attend for entertainment. There are a few lounges that would have been perfect for that sort of thing, but they were not being utilized. There could have been dancing in one of them. At least with a DJ if they couldn't have a band. We had hoped to go dancing at night, but that wasn't an option. There is too much time spent at the Bahamas port and not near enough time spent at the Key West port. Save yourself from having a lousy time and book another boat. Read Less

My first and last cruise. My stateroom was 1604- level 6 in front of the ship. My travel agent put in for a room change to the middle, the request was done & new stateroom assigned. When I printed the luggage tags they were for the original room. Travel agent spent over 2 1/2 hours on the phone trying to get resolved. They said they see the change but it was never completed. Sorry the ship is full and wanted to give me 6 chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. I asked for 1-2 comp days for the premium drink package that I paid $455 for. They refused. 1st night at dinner, our assigned table was with 2 older couples that didn't speak English. The food was horrible. The chef came out and I told him about my meal but they did nothing. We never went back. The pizza shop left out raw pizzas and didn't cook them enough, had to ask to cook more every time. Excursions are very expensive and not worth it. The CAT 4 hurricane was coming so we traveled out at sea somewhere for a day and a half and missed the Coco Cay Island stop. We didn't get to snorkel or go on the party boat but that was out of their hands. I agree with their decision regarding safety of the ship and guests. Most music entertainment was in Spanish which was disappointing as we booked the trip in America. There were guests from 66 different countries aboard and most were very rude. The best things were the Flag of the Countries show, the comedian and adult game shows. The crew members were pleasant and our steward was wonderful.. Read Less

It was our first family cruise. We were a group of 7, with 3 young kids, and my parents. Unfortunately, it was the worst vacation experience we've ever had. First of all, not RCL's fault, the weather was bad. We were only able to get off the ship at Nassau. The other two ports, we were not allowed to go due to the wind (its own island and Key West). Keep in mind, other cruise lines sailing at the same time were able to make it to Key West. Not sure what it was about, anyway, we were bored to death. Then the shore excursion in Nassau was badly organized. We divided into two groups. DH took older kids to Atlantis Aqua Adventure, and I stayed with the baby and my parents for an Atlantis land tour. The Aqua group left earlier, but our group waited under the sun outside till last shuttle (more than 2 hrs). By then, everybody had left, and we were the only people left there and nobody even talked to us about it. We could took a taxi to go by ourselves if we knew it in advance, and pay much lower gate price at Atlantis by ourselves instead of booking through the cruise service. The worst was, even we booked the tour, nobody took care of us. With another group of seniors, we had to talk to the people at Atlantis about our tour and they didn't get the booking, had no idea, and had to arrange it then. Even though, the ship said we could be ashore till 11 pm, we were informed that the last shuttle back was 5 pm, then changed to 4 pm. We had to stay in the ship till 11 pm without activities. The food for the first day was OK. But it got worse and worse. We really like the sushi bar in buffet area for the first day. But for the last two days, the sushi was just a piece of cucumber on rice. It was so bad, the fruit and salad were not fresh anymore. My mom got sick because of the unfresh fruit. There were not enough activities on board, at least not very kid friendly. It was super cold to use the pool. There was nothing else to do during the day. Well, they did arrange the cake tasting during one of two days that we had to stay on board. And one night was a talk show. Who would expect a 6-year old kid enjoy the talk show? To give it an end, the customer service was the worst I have ever talked to. I found out that I didn't get the onboard credit promised during booking, and called (suggested by the cruise staff) after we got off. The representative found out the promotion advertised when booking and promised to give the credit back. But his manager refused to do so, void all credits we should have, and hang up on us. It was my decision to go with Royal Caribbean based on some good reviews, and I was really regret about it. My suggestion is, go to other cruise lines: Disney, Princess, Holland American for your Caribbean cruise, or go cheaper to other lines. Read Less
