I chose RC because the port of call was the most convenient in term of cost of transportation. We boarded from Fort Lauterdale and from then had 3 days of bad weather. Leaving New England for some warmth did not materialize. Entertainment on the ship was very repetitious however the staff was very accommodating which made a big difference in being able to tolerate being on the ship most of the time. Breakfast in the Windjammer had a lot of variety and the staff was very helpful. The dining room staff was excellent. Lodging accommodations were adequate and the room was very clean. The bathroom was a bit cramped but this is a cruise not a hotel. The cleaning staff ls outstanding. I could not discover the charm of Coco Cay on a rainy and windy day. Same for Nassau. The music bands lack enthusiasm thus could not get people involved. The DJs were much better. The inconvenient elevator test during the day could have been done at a less busy time. Could easily have been more generous with the Bingo prizes. The Casino was there to just take more out of people’s wallets and the slot machines did not prove any different. All in all if one is looking for a get away from the rat race at work, this is not all devastatingly bad. I would take another cruise with CR when the weather is more cooperative.
