We choose this cruise as we wanted to go to the Bahamas, Charleston and CocoCay. Unfortunately we were unable to go to CocoCay (seems to be a fairly regular occurrence). As the port is close for a lot of people to drive to, the variety of nationalities is missing on this cruise. Also a lot of people know each other and therefore don't bother talking to anyone else but their friends. The ship is definitely showing its age. The elevators are extremely slow (we took the stairs most of the time), lots of rust, has a shower curtain which wraps around your legs, carpets need cleaning, as do the windows, have to go to guest services if you want a statement of account. The solarium was so hot you couldn't breathe and as usual people are hogging chairs and no one does anything about it. Have no idea what the pool attendants who stand around all day are for. The lady at the Crown and Anchor desk was a joke. She didn't know anything at all. As a Diamond member we're supposed to get "fresh baked cookies" as according to Royal people preferred cookies to the almonds and shortbread pouch. We finally got our cookies on Day 5 of the cruise. The excuse for being late - so many passengers on the ship. What a joke - we've been on Allure and Freedom class and we get the amenities either the first or second day. The entertainment is okay. The comedian on the last day was terrible though. Don't bother going to the dining room for breakfast - it was terrible. Hard as rock English muffin with my Eggs Benedict, runny eggs, powdered scrambled eggs, wait forever for service too. Dinner was great though, food was hot, wide variety and service was excellent.

Cabin Review

Cabin 3569
Cabin was fine. The beds weren't together when we checked it but our stateroom attendant fixed that for us by bedtime. Cabin is starting to show signs of wear, definitely needs new mattresses.
