The Ship itself is well kept and beautiful. The Stateroom was nice and the State room attendant was very nice. The bartenders ...............some were snobs and others were nice ! However, you need to be prepared to spend a lot more once on board the ship as a lot of stuff is not included and its extra ..............a lot extra. Six of us went and we had an "okay" time compared to other destinations. The food at the Windjammer buffer is mediocre at best and its the same thing every day. The bread tastes like cardboard and there is no omelette station which is standard at most other resorts. Plus there is no pre-listing of what themed night it is so you don't know what you are getting I..e Chinese or Mexican or Asian or what ? Its go and see for yourself ! Waiters in buffet are very unattentive. Main dining hall was good but again repetitive after a few days............they just rotate around the menu. Staff is much better there and go out of the way to make you feel comfortable. Still rate it a 7/10. The food overall is bland and tasteless and had to keep adding salt and black pepper to everything ! Kids club for my 4 year old was excellent...........no complaints there ! Activities were good i.e. shows etc. but by no means out of this world............seen better ! Most venues to see shows such as karoke and games etc. were full capacity so you had to end up leaving if you didn't get there about 15-20 mins prior to start. Too many people.............................try a smaller boat like Norwegian Epic ! This is a "pay extra" for everything cruise so if you don't like that then you have a problem ! We spent about $800-1000 extra per person on board including drink package and excursions and starbucks etc. That just seems like a lot of money when you can pay to go to a 5-star resort like Sandals or Riu for less ! Would I recommend it .............................sorry but no..............won't be using Royal Carribean again !

Beautiful ship but disappointing overall
