Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

The state room was extremely clean, the staff were friendly & the ship was small. We were at sea for two days and the pool deck was extremely crowded. I enjoyed the dinner in the main dining room but some of the servers were somewhat rude. They would walk in front of you not waiting for you to pass, and one waitress made us wait almost 10 minutes before taking our order. The head waiter noticed us sitting there & he just took over our table. The specialty restaurant Izumi was off the hook delicious! The staff were fun & friendly and it was affordable considering the quality of the food. The entertainment was also very well planned, the cruise director also entertained and he was very energetic. The last night of the cruise the ship lost power in the state rooms, including heat, It was difficult packing with glow sticks.

This is the second time I sailed on an older RCCL & the last. I prefer larger, newer ships. Overall the cruise was a fun time but the last night put a damper on things. No word if RCCL will provide us with a credit for the inconvenience of the malfunction of their ship.

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

WHen Crusing, you must have a balcony. The room is a nice size & a full size closet was perfect to store suitcase & hang clothes.
