Don't take this ship whatever you do-just don't! I have been on several cruises and this by far was the worst, I don't know what happened to Royal Caribbean, but now I see why their stock keeps going down, along with their quality! The food quality in the main dinning room was a negative 20 on a scale from 1-10, it was just that bad. The "drink" package was bogus, the alcohol is watered down and not as it labeled. I am not a heavy drinker and would be buzzed from 2 drinks, on the first day I drank at least 5-6 drinks by the pool and felt nothing. This continued throughout the trip for me and my group. The food and drinks are both fake, artificial crap, just awful. My the third day I choose just not to eat or drink. The bottled "spring" water was even bad.
And the pool, well if you like swimming in a pool for about 15 people, but with 50+ people in it, filled with sweat and who knows what else, then this ship is perfect. You could not swim in the pool without needing a tetanus shot afterward. There was actually nothing on the ship that did not gross me out, honesty. I am not a complainer, I just need to tell this exactly like it is. I went home and scrubbed myself, I felt that dirty from this ship.
The hallway leading to my room was filled with spots and stains, including vomit that sat there for awhile. Then when I would turn on the water in my bathroom including the shower, there would be an awful smell of sewer and feces. Not really what you think of when you think of a tropical vacation, right? There was nothing tropical about this vacation besides the ports of call...getting off that ship was the best part! And everyone in my group felt the same way. RCL recognize your quality on this ship is literally awful, I could not wait to get off that ship. And I am from Miami and have been on many cruises, getting back to Miami was the best part of the whole vacation.
Bathroom was awful, would smell like sewer every time I ran the water and the entire bathroom would turn into a bathtub every time I ran the water. The sheets made me uncomfortable to sleep under, everything else was so dirty, I honestly felt like I was going to get bed bugs.
