We chose this cruise solely based on the itinerary & date, as we were a group of 8. From the beginning to the end, it just wasn't as good as the Anthem of the Seas. The boarding lines were a nightmare, with the staff unable to control the lines, people rudely cutting, while we followed the instructions. One of of our group had to have their cabin sanitized as it stunk of body odor. Another group had a broken safe for the entire trip and no one fixed it, and their rug and sofa were stained. There were people visibly sick everywhere (coughing) by day 3. 5 of the 8 of us got the flu by day 5. One of the excursions were cancelled, and our party was not told until 20 minutes after the departure time.(1 PM) Not enough time to make any other plans for the day.Disappointed that the buffet did not have an omelet station, as Anthem did. Promenade coffee shop always had lukewarm water and decaf every morning, and you had to ask for fresh hot tea water or decaf. The staff everywhere seemed to have an attitude, with the exception of our dining room waiter and assistant. Trivia MC was an idiot, couldn't keep track of what number question it was. The comedy, water, & aerial shows were great. "Cats" was ok, but I saw it on Broadway, so maybe that's why I wasn't impressed. The Solarium pool had green mildew all around the rim. Worst part we brought 4 people who normally sail Carnival and told them how great RCCL was, and were totally embarrassed! They said Carnival was better, so what does that tell you?
