I chose royal carribean having heard of its reputation as the largest and best cruise liner. I have previously travelled on princess and Msc cruise ships but unfortunately the overall experience did not match up to these two cruise lines. The ports St. Thomas, San Juan and labadee were really poor, as were all the excursions. Be aware that there’s nothing to do in San Juan activity wise except walk around and also you do not experience the true Haiti in labadee, it’s private royal carribean land that is denied to the natives and sugar coated. Royal carribean expect to be tipped on absolutely everything- where’s the rationality in charging a gratatuity of $13.50 for a box of popcorn which cost $2.50.....? The food in the main dining room was really decent, but the same could not be said for the windjammer cafe, especially at lunch time. The choice of desserts was disappointing and exactly the same everyday- they just changed the colour of the cakes and who wants soggy bread and butter pudding with vanilla sauce everyday(why couldn’t they serve custard, cream or ice cream)? The captain drove the ship quickly and my partner and I were sea sick half the time so we missed out on many activities, unfortunately medication did not work for us

Rubbish ports and rocky journey
