This was our 21st cruise and we have also sailed on the Grandeur of The Seas (sister ship to Enchantment) out of Baltimore previously. I totally understand some of the comments on cruise critic and on other sites made from long time cruisers concerning the cost cutting in cruising in general. I really noticed it on this ship.
It has been very evident in our last two Royal Caribbean International (RCI) cruises. It is pretty clear they are trying to pay for building massive ships they can't fill. RCI didn't fill this one either because the ship was about 600 passengers short. RCI jacked up the price the last two months (before sailing) and had they not done that the ship would have been filled or close to it. This was the first time I have sailed on a ship not full.
My first comment is the staff on this ship is top notch (except Cruise Director) and this ship is very clean. They were rated cleanest ship in the RCI fleet.
