I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the cruise itself was OK. I say surprised because 2 Royal cruises were on last year were pretty bad. On this cruise food in the MDR was ok, not great but acceptable. A couple of misses but in general OK. I was concerned that they removed the always offered items however we were always able to find something. I even thought the coffee was OK.
Food in Chops was quite good, we did lunch there. I think they are overpriced for dinner.
Crew was friendly, service was very good. I liked the show we went to. The excursion team was excellent. Much better than any other Royal or Celebrity ship I have been on. I was also happy with the excursions. One glitch was the team was a bit disorganized for the first port of call but that was all fixed by the second. Also loved the talks they gave on the ports we were about to visit.
