We had a very disappointing five days on this ship sailing from New Jersey, US to Bermuda. This was our first cruise, and I will never cruise with Royal Caribbean again. While the staff was always helpful and hard working (especially in the main dining room), the ship was overcrowded. We waited on line for two hours to board the ship at the terminal in New Jersey. And, once we were on the ship, we waited on line for everything from towels, to breakfast, to customer service. There were never enough chairs for the passengers to sit comfortably and relax. It was impossible to find a quiet spot to sit and enjoy the beautiful views. The music from the children's pool area was deafening. The food was average, and the entertainment was mediocre. This was a budget cruise experience with a luxury cruise price tag. The worst part was that there was an ever present smell of sewage in the hallway on our floor. The best part was that the early disembarkation was quick and we could get off the ship soon after we docked.
