My wife and I have been on this ship several times. We had a deck 9 balcony cabin which was good. Nice quiet cabin. The railing outside needed to be refinished. other wise as expected. On the first night did the Mystery Dinner. it was good. The meal in Giovannis was good. Nice start. Food in MDR seemed a bit cut back. Coffee every where was yuk. Not as good as before. Not as good as NCL in December. The selections just did not seem as good as previous RCCL cruises. The breakfast did have the waffle station back.Really like those freshly cooked waffles. Glad they were back. Did not do the shows as have done them before. The ice show was same as all year. this is normally good. So can't say anything bad about it. Just did not want to see it again. The bars were mostly good, but it seemed some usually available better liquor just was not available. Most of the crew was friendly. Usually in the buffet was where we ran into the "no look, no speak" staff. Food in buffet was usually good. Just a noisy location. My wife had birthday.Got this offer from SPA for a free gift. It was not. Only $$ off if one spends X amount of money in the spa. The wife was hacked. The ship was more noisy than normal over the PA at all venues. The buffet area was quite noisy. Quite a few kids on this cruise, but PA again was just loud. The quiet area was the cigar bar. A nice escape. Sadly scheduled to be removed. Maybe NCL is looking better. They still have cigar bars. Their specialty dinners are better. Would we go again on RCCL ? Yes, but getting close to a no go.

Looking tired

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 5D
9356 was a good cabin. Only needs some cleaning up. A quiet location. I had to shim up the balcony dividers, and a rattling picture frame.
