We chose this cruise for the itinerary. The port experiences were as expected, quite happy with the ports ..... all first time visits except Australia. It was a very low budget cruise ..... but the cruise price wasn't!!!! Embarkation was very smooth at the Kai terminal. It is huge, the team were organized and kept the crowd moving smoothly. It was nothing like the mess we had heard of from previous cruisers. They have listened to previous reviews .... thank you for that. The cruise clientele was mixed, Australian, US, Asian, Canadian and European. A wide range of tastes to accommodate. The food was repetitive, and pretty much boring. The beef was horrible, there was more salmon served then I have ever seen. The 'used food' in the buffet had no flavor and obvious ..... last night's Yorkshire pudding, veggies, roast meats chopped, sliced etc and recooked..... tough, dry and tasteless. Small but I loved it .... there were poached eggs and hollandaise in the buffet every day. =0) Many of the staff were new, lacking training and nervous for the first few days of the cruise. No one seemed to know what they were doing. The dining service improved as the days went on. Many officers seemed to be in active clean up duty. The bar staff were all excellent. The CD team was wonderful. We really enjoyed James, Sophie and Shreta (sp), they are personable, professional and top notch. The spa offers were generous. I had my gel nails repaired, excellent service. The comedians, musicians, hypnotist, orchestra and small bands were all very good. The officer entertainment was the best! It was really nice to see the officers in events during the cruise. The dance team were good, the shows were not what we have come to expect from RCCL. The Diamond teams in both the lounge and Viking overflow and our cabin staff Okle and Ide were also excellent. The ship was in good condition. We weren't sure what this would be like considering it has been sold, delivery to happen in 2017. It was not a good example of an RCCL cruise, many first timers we met said they would not choose RCCL again. We took the Legend in 2007 to the Mexican Riviera, and it was pretty much the same. We found it very strange and interesting that it hadn’t changed. The ship won’t be available …. But not sure we would do this itinerary again.

Mostly needs improvement. Great CD team and Diamond teams were excellent.
