As a quick summary it seems that royal Caribbean is becoming more of a budget cruise line when it comes to food ...our last cruise was thomson , ..there was lobster on the menu...on royal Caribbean it was a chargeable extra.
On royal Caribbean the fish pie had crab sticks in it an not a lot else. The scallops (well I think they were scallops were the size of peas).
Breakfast in the main dining room is now part self service( get your own cereals , orange juice etc) and part waiter (omelettes, sausages, bacon etc) but you wait for ages for anything ordered. This was out of keeping with service which generally was very good.
Entertainment and everything else was on the side of good and above budget level cruising but the food is not up to the level of princess, celebrity or p&o ( and suprisingly below thomson unless as stated you want to pay extra ...30 dollars per person extra for lobster)
Apart from the net curtains which were awfull ...the cabin was good. Well maintained and clean.
Venice is fabulous to cruise out of
Only if you haven't been before... The acropolis is a must
