Sail Date: Nov 2008
Cabin: Promenade Stateroom

After an absence of about 4 years I decided to try Royal Caribbean again. I should never have bothered. They definitely earn their standing as worst cruise line in my book.

This was a 12 day cruise and the tap water came out brown during the entire cruise. I understand the problem continued on the following cruise. The bathroom featured a nice shower with good water pressure. There was a shampoo dispenser but no shower gel. They place bar soap in the shower. Also, there is a water restricter on the sink tap which made the water come out in almost a trickle. I needed to use the handheld shower head to rinse out anything in the sink. Luckily it reached.

The men's gym was disgusting. The soiled towels piled up and fresh towels were not to be found. Several phone calls were made before anyone would appear to clean up. On Carnival, there was a full-time crew member maintaining the changing area.

Cabin Review

Promenade Stateroom

Drawer space next to nil. Water restricter on bathroom tap reduces flow to almost a trickle. Too many pillow shams and such on the bed making it a chore to take a nap. Good shower stall with semi-cirular door. Excellent shower pressure. Shampoo dispenser only. Bar soap instead of shower gel.
