Itinerary was great. Ship condition was below average. Dated and reeking of smoke. Food was below average. The buffet had the exact same food on it for 12 days. Everything was an up charge. Wine options were below average. The only decent wines were not included in the drink package and were an additional up charge. Why offer a drink package that doesn't include 50% of the drinks. The only channels on the TV were advertising for Royal Caribbean or how to spend money on the ship and BBC. They had movies on your TV available for $12/movie!!! Ridiculous. After 10pm there was nothing available to eat except cookies and pizza. The entertainment was below average. The movie theater was tiny, therefore should have ran the movies all day. They only had 2/day. I only saw 1 movie in 12 days because the theater was always full. The deal killer was the smell of smoke that smacked you in the face the minute you stepped onto the ship.

Entire ship smelled of smoke from the Casino
