Please understand we love cruising and couldn't wait for our first time on Royal Caribbean but we just want people to be warned to set your expectations low!!

Pros-- Cozumel always awesome with the beautiful water and great people

Belize ok but if we don't go back no big deal

Roatan awesome our first time there and Maya Key was amazing

The comedy show of Alfred and Seymour were hilarious

Cons-- notice that none of the pros were related to the ship other than the comedy show, where to start, well it smelled like mildew on the 8th floor (we warned you) the windjammer food is nearly inedible, the biscuits for breakfast can double as hockey pucks, the eggs were obviously instant eggs and not real, the dinner is below Golden Corral or Furrs, and the worst part is the windjammer closed at 9!!!

The main dining room really the only good option was the lobster one night, the rest of the nights were average to below average at best, and the portions are pathetic. Don't complain about the food or you will be asked if you have tried the pay options of Chops or Sabor, which we didn't book the cruise so that we could pay addl money for food we should be getting served in the main dining room. Also if you have been on Carnival and had the luxury of Guys Burger joint you don't get that on RC no you get to pay for a burger at Johnny Rockets which was unfortunately the best meal we had.

Next up is the pool area, the best seats that are facing the pool are reserved for suite holders so if you aren't in a suite (99% of the people) you will get to try to find one of the seats that don't face the TV screen or the action, and as for the TV screen don't worry it is all commercials for royal Caribbean and the bigger ships that are "better" than the one you paid for. The promenade that they are so proud of is a waste of space, Also PLEASE stop trying to get me to buy tanzanite I don't care!!!!! I could go on but you probably stopped reading anyway, to make a long story short (too late) we will NEVER cruise RC again not worth it!
