Staying in the Haven made all the difference. The main ship was overcrowded. The food in the general dinning halls was consistently bland and cold. What happened to evening entertainment being easy to attend and included in the cost? Never again unless the Haven is available, The tours are the usual activities offered by all cruise lines. Book early because tours go fast. The Priority perks promoted are underwhelming. When available we felt like we were paraded by the “downstairs” passengers like over-pampered pooches. The food in the specialty restaurants was good but what I expect in the main dinning room. The tour director was snarky at best. Most evening activities seemed to be planned to offer a phoned-in effort to get passengers in bed by 11. ’ Captain kept us in good weather and offered good information on locations. We’re eager to get back to RCL, Celebrity or Regent.

RCL still my favorite

Cabin Review

The Haven Courtyard Penthouse with Balcony
Cabin H5
The Haven was perfect but don’t believe what they say about “priority” this and that.
