We chose this cruise for the itinerary. We were not enthusiastic about the size, and the large number of passengers, but the itinerary was our goal. The ship was SO crowded - on sea days, the Promenade was clogged with people; the tiny library was almost always full (no cash earnings, there, I guess) and the Windjammer was chaotic. We were mainly happy with the food, although usually not hot enough in Windjammer. The MDR food was good, but very repetitive. Cabin stewards fantastic - great service. I find RCL to be at "nuisance" level in terms of trying to extract money at every turn. . . . . . Constant spruiking of "free seminars" at the spa which were unadulterated sales pitches for every possible health aid. Misleading advertising. Also, unless you were taking a ship excursion, there was virtually no info on ports - on other companies, we've been given maps, fact sheets, and talks. Not anything on RCL. Not a big ask, I would have thought. It wasn't a disaster, but a few small things would have made an immense difference. Embarkation & disembarkation were smooth and quick. Full marks.

Mediocre
