We choose this cruise because of the iternary and price. The ports of call were wonderful. The entertainment aboard was excellent except for ABBA. Loved the enrichment programs. Wish they had some bridge games. The food was very ordinary I was shocked the dining room was serving butter in little plastic tubs not my idea of fine dining. ROYAL is making a big mistake not offering at least one choose of the ports food on their menus. We felt the cost cutting was to obvious. Everything aboard felt like an allacarte menu except the menus in the dining room. The stretch and ab class in the mornings were good. The beginning of the cruise the photographers were way to aggressive. The staff was very friendly, some of the people running the trivia games need a lot more work on their English. The security people were like prison guards in the beginning you felt like you were being hearded into a cell and not in a kind manner. I heard a guest ream out the front desk manager about them and they did become a little friendly and kinder. It is very difficult to find a quiet place on the ship other than in your cabin. Does LOUD music have to be playing Everywhere?

A really good cruise

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 1N 2012/3544
It was fine we actually like deck 2 the best, it was quiet and very easy to get on and off the ship from this location and with daylight so many hours out small port hole was perfect.
