Chose this ship as we loved Oasis and other RCL cruises. This one however was torturous with the amount of noise around the pool decks from the really loud amplified music to the blaring screeching voice on the microphone. Even in Central Park 5 decks down we could not escape the noise and even the brass band could not be heard over the voice commentary from deck 15. The promenade deck had music blaring out from each venue, like they were in competition so that it all merged into one loud sound. Could only shout at each other in conversation. Spoiled our holiday and reconsidering any future cruise.

The staff were always friendly and accommodating but there are definitely cutbacks. We found the Windjammer buffet had a good variety but the main dining menu is much less choice than ever before, and very ordinary- think high street menu. However it was good quality

Cabin Review

Balcony cabin, sea view, very well appointed
