I have to say I am now 57 years old and this is the worst holiday I have ever had. One positive note was the boarding process which was pretty slick. After that we had Breakfast on the first day in the Wind Jammer restaurant which was disgusting, filthy dirty, food all over the floor, no tables available and when they were they weren't cleaned. People walking around eating their breakfast, pushing and shoving to get a limited choice of food, I hope I never have an experience like this ever again. We ate at the Edelweiss restaurant that night which was slightly better but still very limited choice of food, my brother was looking at the wine list and I asked to look at another one but was told they only had 1 wine list for the entire restaurant of over 300 people. We brought some Champagne on board with us and needed an ice bucket, on the first night this took an hour and a half to arrive, on the second night it took 1 hour 45 minutes and I was told that nobody was in room service on a ship with 2,000 people. Additional charges on the boat were extortionate so be prepared to be ripped off, wifi was 25 dollars a day each so a total of 50 dollars per day, drinks packages were 84 dollars a day each so a total of 168 dollars per day, fines for not returning towels, 28 dollars for one game of bingo rip off rip off rip off ! We decided not to buy a drinks package and were charged 30 dollars for 2 drinks ! In our cabin our toilet was blocked every day ( cabin next to us was shut off ) and the staff were not bothered, we couldn't use the toilet and only on the last day of the cruise when I reported the problem again as I did every day at 7.00am did they fix it at 2.30pm but only when I threatened to pour contents in corridor on ship so we could use it. Pool area was very small and not enough sunbeds round the pool, we had one day cruising without a stop and the pool was closed all day. If I never see a Royal Caribbean ship again it will be to soon.
