Bigger is not better. This was our 3rd cruise and by far the worst. When we arrived in our cabin, it was not clean. We were unable to get in touch with our cabin attendant or get anyone to answer the phone the first 2 hours we were on the ship. When we did he came and recleaned,only by our request. He didn't seemed concerned about our service. The food was marginal at best. The dining room was ok. Our waiter told us how he didn't like his job and was counting the days until he finished in June. The service was poor. There were not enough workers. You had to wait for a drink sometimes 30 min. in a bar. The ship was overcrowded and unfriendly. The ports of call were overcrowded and took forever to disembark. There was not a lot of activities on deck. There was only one 24 hour snack place. No water, tea or coffee stations. Several restaurants closed early. People were smoking all over the ship and the non smoking policy did not seem to matter or be enforced. There was a loud noise like metal on metal above our cabin. We complained and was assured someone would check it out - to no avail. The activity schedule on the ship was limited. The rock climbing wall, Ice rink etc. was opened limited times. I would not cruise Royal Caribbean again. The first 2 times on Carnival and Celebrity were wonderful vacations. This was an overall poor vacation.
