Additional details

Sail Date: May 2016
Cabin: Family Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

A totally un-pleasant experience, ship was not fit for paying passengers, workmen were everywhere, drilling, welding, floors being prepared and repaired, cables everywhere, ladders everywhere, there seemed no area on board that was not receiving some sort of work, hot tubs not working, childrens water area not working, aqua theatre not finished, ceilings being fitted, we had one crew member tell us we were guinea pigs for proper passengers, we brought this cruise sold as a maiden voyage back in Sept 2015 only to be told the real maiden voyage is from Spain on 29th May.

We were totally miss sold this trip, if it had been appropriately priced and we had been aware it was a shakedown cruise then we would have known what to expect, but we paid full price for this and were told by passenger services on board we could have 20% off our next booking, we have no intention of ever booking another Royal Caribbean cruise, we will be sticking to the more professional P+O.

A complete waste of money and valuable holiday time, if you want to holiday aboard a floating shopping center, save money and book into a cheap hotel near a large shopping complex and visit each day for the duration of your holiday.

Very good Stateroom, but no better than other cruise ships we have sailed on, No tea coffee making facility, no toiletries, no bed time chocolate. stateroom not made up properly on last night.

its the little things that make all the difference.
