Sail Date: Jul 2022

We booked this cruise for the great ports of call that we're on offer. The itinerary was sete, toulon, corsica, palma de mallorca, ibiza, cartagena, valenica and back into Barcelona.

Embarkation was a breeze, the emuster drill is fantastic and saves a lot of time on the first day to do fun stuff around the ship.

Dining however seems to be where the ship is having problems. The windjammer food seems to have declined since when we last on royal in October last year. Baked beans watered down at breakfast with vegetable being added to the mix. Bacon was cut into hundreds of pieces in order to save on food. Food was often brought out from the kitchen cold and because the ship was full it was very hard to obtain certain food without it running out in minutes. The MDR was good overall however the service is slower these days due to staffing shortage. Be prepared for portion sizes to be smaller ad well.
