Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Ocean View

We have been cruising since the early 1990's and have cruised mainly with NCL and Carnival. We have been on 50 plus cruises. This is our second Royal Caribbean cruise; our first was on the Allure. Our last cruise was on the NCL Bliss in October 2018.

Embarkation: We arrived at the Port of Los Angeles to find that there were two lines. Priority and everyone else. The lines were long and looked like Disney Land. It appears that there were not enough workers to accommodate the amount of people. A few weeks prior we sailed on NCL and there were plenty of workers to acclimate the 4000 people and the boarding process went smoothly. Once on the ship the only option for lunch was the buffet. The main dining room was not open as it is on other cruise lines.

Ship: The ship was built in 1998 and is showing its age. The furniture was old and outdated. RCL should retire the ship or give it a complete overhaul in side.

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin 1N

Older ships have larger cabins - That was a plus however, the furniture and carpet were old and out dated. The beds were hard as a rock. Royal Caribbean management - take a cruise on Princess. The beds are the best.
