It is a shame to rate the review 2 Stars when it could have easily been 5 Stars, however for the Strictly Kosher traveler the kosher food was at best marginal, and most times third world. I n all fairness if you are not a kosher traveler then this trip would be fantastic. The ship is hugh, modern, clean, and very exciting shows and entertainment...but if your a kosher traveler you 're going to suffer. Airlines pre packaged food was better than this cruise. Not wanting to mention the kosher source, its definitely worth asking your travel agent from which kosher caterer the food is coming from, and not only that....you must insist on seeing the actual menu in advance. do not take no for an answer...we were stuck

with the same meat menu all 12 nites and the menu was 4 items...thats it ! only one out of the four were able to be eaten....Weve complained to RCCL people and all they could tell us was that theyre looking to improve caterers, but they didnt get the idea that is they did serve decent kosher food much more kosher travelers would take their cruises..but it seemed to go on deaf ears sorry to say...Again the ship was great...now you have to see if you can handle the food...We took vacuum sealed food and actually boiled them in water

with a little coil heater..and it worked..and you could take that to the dinner table...but its no way to enjoy a cruise...but go anyway..its a great trip..just dont be disappointed in the food situation and you'll be fine....Bon Voyage
