This was our 14th cruise (all with RCL). It was definitely the easiest getting on and off a boat we have experienced. This is a big beautiful boat but with that being said, was probably the worse cruise we have experienced. No matter where you went on the boat you could smell cigarette smoke (which was mainly from the casino on the 4th deck). The casino doors were right across from the dining room and the smoke smell was so strong while you were waiting to get into the dining room. It was a constant smell on the elevators no matter what floor. We probably experienced the worse food on all our cruises. We had dinner 2 nights in Chops and 1 night in the Seafood Restaurant. We did have a nice dinner at the Seafood Restaurant. We have eaten at the Chops restaurant on at least 5 or 6 other ships and this was by far the worse food. The quality of the food on this boat was definitely a topic of conversation throughout the week from the people on the boat. We also paid for the Wi FI but it didn't work the majority of the time. Come on RCL you can do better than this.

Extremely Disappointing
