I have no idea where to start , this was our first and definitely our last RCC ...embarkment took hours , stood in hot lines for hours ,then as soon as on the ship ,the emergency training , again stood on deck in crowds , could not see a thing , or how to put on a life jacket. The ship was run down , lots of damp patches , nasty smells and dirty areas. The food most of the time luke warm , I had raw pork and a hair in my scrambled egg , the sous chef was informed , he came out and apologised and said he couldn't watch everything ....after that I late the safer foods ...bread rolls and salad. Cheese and biscuits in the resturant ... 2 pieces of rather old cheese and a packet of salten crackers. Entertainment awful ... I have no words A few members of staff helpful , most seemed confused and untrained No sun beds , not once did I get on deck it was like 1980 Benidorm on sea , towels put out at 8am to save your sunbed, Trips.... Nice was a no go due to the terrible situation which was just awful ....the trips were over priced , no real port info ..or as little as possible terrible queues it get in and off in Lisbon ..ended up with only a few hours there , no water etc on return to ship even in the very hot temps I could go on forever...I wish I had taken note of the reviews before I paid for my holiday ..I should have cancelled and rebooked with another company but did not believe it could be so bad .... Royal Caribbean so disappointing
