arrived at the port with our friends from the United Kingdom for the 8 day cruise to the Bahamas was quite excited about our vacation but we then went on the pool deck and some of the top deck was cordoned off as there were 3 beams broken and had been taped off with duck tape and painted as a cover up .There were water leaks in the solarium was roped off,windows tied down to main beam in windjammer.We learnt when set off from Baltimore that the ship had been in 30ft waves the day before and this contributed to the damage.Surely all damages should have sorted before the next voyage as risking injury to people in which 1 lady had slipped and broken her knee cap.Then on the way back Gastrointestinal virus was on the ship teenagers and children areas had shut down this then made all other areas very crowded.stepped on a thumb tack in one of the elevators and another elevator dropped 4-5 inch when stopped and my husband tripped over with crutches.. The food was bad in windjammer same stuff day in day out,husband was asked to keep moving in the line which is a bit difficult with crutches. entertainment was not good there was no atmosphere on the ship at all, there was good music when coming into port of Baltimore a bit late. All in all very disappointed in this trip it cost a lot of money especially for our friends from the UK. Cruised with the royal caribbean 4 times will not be g0ing with them again now to wait another 12 months for a vacation.

dissapointed
