Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

I believe ljpinko said all that I was going to say. I also wrote RC a lengthy email about our experience. I am still waiting to hear from them.

My family and I (about 7 people) booked this vacation and what happened on board was awful. I would say about 95% of the passengers were drunk college students. These people were toasted, high, rude and just all around out of control. I wonder if the previous reviewer was also in the same "safety" drill where the Georgia State fighting song was sang during the captains announcement. I agree completely with the previous review of this "booze cruise".

My family and I are pretty high crown and anchor members and din't get the previous level of service due us. The crew seemed way over worked and stressed. I can imagine dealing with a way over capacity boat and drunk college students would do that.

Cabin D1

Out dated and smelly. I never met our cabin attendant until he began cleaning it out the morning of departure.
