1) Royal Caribbean does not allow criticism, just accolades in their web reviews. 2) Royal Caribbean and other cruise lines are now floating retail malls intent on selling you every minute on board. Even in the food service in their main dining room (in the past superb), their menus are becoming dull and not as well prepared as though promoting their expanding "on board paid" restaurants now provide the best they have to offer. Main dining table service remains excellent. 3) After five cruises, the dancing and singing shows remain great (especially the Broadway Fever performance with Margaryta Garmash-Kyiv and Levgen Tkachenko / 5 stars) as well as the ice dancing and the Platters. However, they could have left the comics on shore. Personally, we would have preferred to see more of the Royal Caribbean Dancers and Singers. 4) It bothers us that some have historically slighted the service crew on deserved tips (their primary income), but Royal Caribbean now processes passenger automatic tips. You have to go to the desk to opt out if you want to direct your gratuities to those working their best for you in the now "WOW" program. 5) There is no space provided on the Royal Caribbean survey for anything like the above and "that" is a management issue.
