This cruise was a disaster from day one. Shows are well below the standards set on out previous cruises on Monarch, Enchantment, or Freedom. The shows were on the level of a high school talent show...actually worse. The midnight buffet consisted of seafood spread finger sandwiches? The dining room service and food on this ship was appalling. We sent back 5 steaks on this cruise. The cruise director was dull, vulgar and insensitive to passengers. He just wasn't funny or energizing like we had experienced on the other cruises. Royal has given us excellent vacations in the past, but now I question my loyalty to the line.  

Bad, bad, bad; save your money!
