Very nice, but no WOW, which made it a disappointing cruise.

Sail Date: Aug 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Traveled with children

Our return to RCL after cruising with several other lines , but we were struck by the advertising and the WOW being offered , so we decided to diet the bullet and pay the very expensive price being offered.

The embarkation was brilliant , just a few minutes checking in with a friendly assistant and then straight to our cabin , which was all ready with WOW bands etc . And then straight to the Windjammer for some lunch. Brilliant start , but unfortunately many disappointments were to follow.

Dining. We were prepared to give the Dynamic Dining a chance and to be fair we had no problem in booking tables prior to departure . We were a party of six including two children so were pleased at the time to get this done. Subsequently as we found a couple of the comp restaurants did not come up to expectation and times we had booked no longer suited we had no problem in changing our bookings to another venue at a different time. Very strange why we were not able to pre book more favourable times pre sailing as all times seemed to be available when booking at the restaurant door which makes you wonder if all the hassle of on line booking for the Dynamic Dining was in fact worth the aggro. The booking staff were excellent.
