This is not our first cruise with Royal Carribean where we have always enjoyed the ships and staff but after our experience on this ship im sorry to say it could be our last. Is Royal Carribean putting quantity before quality in therecruises now? He food on this cruise was cold and un edible, we had to buy the specialists food packages to ensure a hot meal, well done jamie Olivers and Chops grill and the pub without you i wouldnt have had a hot meal. The embarking in Beijing port was utter chaos, no organisation or signage Our suitcase was ripped on delivery to our cabin but customer servce exelled in replacing it straight away The bed and sheets were perfect only little grip is why dont they put on USA size pillows insttead of silly little ones Library why is this in a entertainment venue where you couldnt read in peace, surely the library should be in a quiet room! No drink when you got back to port from excursions, and believe me we needed it, this has always happened on previous cruises. They did do this on the last two ports after my husband pointed this was not being done

Cold and inedible food, quantity before quality

  • City Tour
    Perfect way to see Hong Kong, only complaint that we were taken to a jewel factory which no one wanted, wasted and hour which would have been better spent adding time to visit to Stanley market

    Went over and above what we expected, saw the ight music and light show at gardens by the bay, then went to the Sky Walk where we saw the show again from above followed by a River cruise, perfect evening
