We live in Houston, and Galveston is only an hour away from our home. My husband and I have sailed on Royal Caribbean several times and are seasoned cruisers. Age 57-53. Embarkation- was a breeze, got to the port at 10:30AM and was on the ship by 11:15AM. Stateroom available at 1PM. Service- on board the ship was awesome. Drink service a bit slow, but was not because of the service, just they did not have enough help to manage the crowd. Our cabin steward was beyond great.
Cabin- bed was beyond horrible. It was like sleeping on the floor. We asked for a foam topper to be told they no longer provided. Again, the bed was horrible!!
Main dining room-food was the worse than we have ever had on a cruise. The steak did not have the texture of a steak. It was like spam in a steak form. Disgusting.
Windjammer-food was like a local buffet, breakfast was the same every day.
Chops-excellent food, but the waiter seemed disinterested and only wanted reassurance that we would rate him high on the survey that you received after you got home.
Tender-to Grand Cayman-I KID YOU NOT-TOOK US THREE HOURS TO GET OFF THE SHIP!!! Three hours of our cruise waiting to get on a boat to take us to shore.
Jamaica-did not do an excursion thru Royal Caribbean. Did a private excursion and had the time of our lives!
Cozumel-nothing special-been there-done that.
Main show-high school kids could do a better job. Terrible.
Comedian-raunchy doesn’t make it funny.
Ice Show-Day one they made you wait in line for tickets, and show night didn’t even ask for them. Show-not bad-not great
Pictures-they have you look on a kiosk to decide if you would like to purchase, and have writing all across the pictures so you cannot tell until after you buy them if you have say your eyes closed or something doesn’t look right.
One night the entire ship lost power for maybe 2 minutes, totally freaked. However, you would think nothing happened. Drink service continued. People just didn’t seem to even notice. Way funny.
One woman on board stayed drunk the entire trip-falling down drunk-got mean and loud and no one stepped in to take care of it. Every show she was loud and trying to get attention and again no one from Royal Caribbean stepped in to stop her. One show she was in the front seat and started to cry and blaming the performer for her troubles. Stopped the whole show- Again, no one stepped in to stop her.
TIPS-watch out peeps- people take their karaoke very serious!
