We booked late, and this was what fit our budget. That should have been the first sign.
The ship kept reminding me of "The Love Boat" then it occurred to me that it was almost that old of a ship. The styling, the dance floor, the carpet... It all just seems styled in the 90s. Even though I'm sure the vision has had a refit since.
I'm not a huge participant in cruise activities, and I'm not complaining about that, it just struck me as mediocre. The food was ok, not amazing. The bars were stocked with decent top shelf spirits, not the best. The service was ok to poor until we started hanging out with a diamond member. Then it got better.
Over all, I had a good time, but it's not what I've come to expect from Royal Caribbean. It just seemed to be the bare minimum required.
