Cabin:

My wife and I have 35 cruises behind us and thought RCL was the best line. How wrong we were. You can see cuts in every way. We thought the food was the best, but they have the same menu in the main restraint for 4 days and then repeat on the last 4 days again. The food tasted like it was all pre cooked and just heated. Two of the restaurants were clearly just bad. The food was over salted and poor quality.

The buffet was terrible. There were 2 bars of Indian food. I did not notice more than 10 Indians on the ship, but no one really ate from the Indian food. I tried the Indian food and it was just bad. I think the key is to force you to the restaurants that cost to dine. RCL can keep their Indian food that no one eats, they should put the wasted money in some good food that people will eat.

The entertainment was also nothing like we had on previous cruises. The ship had very advanced theaters, but it seemed like they wanted to show off the technology rather than a good show. One show was so terrible, that everyone had no idea about the story line. They had technology, but no meaningful show to utilize the technology. Just shows how bad the executives make decisions.
