We are Diamond+. 45 cruises in 3 years. Why do ships make rules, but don't enforce them, e.g. dining rooms - men wearing shorts t-shirts and thongs, not good enough! Junior cruisers without adult supervision up to 1am? Yikes, disaster. No ticketing for tenders and ice shows - you have to be kidding, a recipe for disaster. Children playing games on the dance floor, whilst people trying to dance. Dangerous! If a family is 'put off' for unsociable behaviour, RCI should announce it, no names etc, but let people know there are consequences for bad behaviour. Children seated at front of theatre and playing up, and going onto the stage during live performances.?? Dining room food, very good, service excellent. The staff onboard work very hard, extremely hard. Some customers should pull their head in. The Ice show is great, seen it many times. The theatre/production shows have been running for too long, they are ok for first timers, but new routines songs headliners should be brought on. I can even guess the comedians next jokes... Events e.g. trivia karaoke band art auctions game shows, should start and finish as per the daily compass, with a 15 minute break to allow people to move in/out comfortably. We want RCI to be successful, the above is intended to help them be better.
