This cruise was awful. The only good thing was the cabin. The cruise as full of young families with toddlers who did not control their children. Worse the hygeine in dining areas was appalling. Tables were sticky and only wiped with dirty cloths. Cruise members allowed to do anything at buffets, take a bite...put it back, taste the sauce with fingers, eat directly from buffet. Staff just watched. Food was bland poorly labelled. Main dining room food inedible. A cruise where you lost weight hey! Entertainment awful. Singers off key. Shore excursions way overpriced. The Norwegian ports very boring. Difficult ship to find a quiet reading spot due to loud music and uncontrolleds kids. I have loved past cruises with Princess and Holland America but RC was really bad. We couldnt wait to get off! I made complaints but nothing changed. Its easy to control buffet hygeine. Other cruise lines do it why cant Royal Carribean?

Worst cruise ever
