This is our 10th cruise, 3rd with Royal. It was just hubby (50) and myself (46). We flew in the night before from Atlanta and stayed at Cambria Suites. Nice hotel, free shuttle. Arrived at the port at 10:15am, on the ship at 11:15. Hubby loves getting their EARLY. Several venues open for lunch, we select Johnny Rocket's so we can enjoy lunch without the chaos of the Windjammer. Food was average, service was great. It was $14.95 for our lunch plus his milkshake. We requested early dining, large table. We had early dinner with a table for 4. While our table-mates were pleasant we had absolutely nothing in common with them (30 yr old siblings who still voluntarily live at home with their parents...). Service was fantastic, we had finished our dessert within 75 minutes each evening which was perfect for us. Food was again average at best. The prime rib the 1st evening was dreadful, later in the week it was much better. The lobster was typical cruise lobster, you get what you get. The only meal that was memorable was Chops. The food far outranked the service. We expected it to be a 2 hour meal, they prepared us by telling us that "no food would be plated or served before it's time".....but there was no personality, no friendliness whatsoever from the staff. This included the hostess even. And it wasn't that they were trying to be exceptionally formal, there was just simply 'no light on' with the staff at all. But again, food was fantastic, but pass on the onion rings, they were clearly not homemade but frozen. Entertainment was as good as we had heard. We went to everything and enjoyed Chicago and Blue Planet the most and the Ice Show the least. The performers fell far too often to be performing in this type of venue and we heard it happened at every show that week. They only landed one jump in 45 minutes. The couple skaters were much better. Either get more experienced skaters and change the routine to something they can do because missing that many jumps is very distracting. Comedians were very funny and maybe only 1/5 of the show was really R rated. Earl Turner was the Headliner and he put on a good show but it is certainly geared to the 60+ age group. Our cabin and Cabin Steward were terrific. We had an ocean view balcony. Plenty of storage, balcony was comfortable for 2 and we enjoyed lunch out there several times. Beds were not near as comfortable as the ones on the Carnival Dream in our opinion. We enjoyed the Valet luggage service which is a real treat at $20 per person. We put our luggage outside our cabin the night before and picked it up in Atlanta later that afternoon. We leisurely walked off the ship at 8:15am and were in our cab by 8:30 and at the airport by 8:45am.

Beautiful ship - stellar entertainment - average food

Cabin Review

Cabin 6322
Loved our cabin despite it being 3 cabins from back of ship. Felt no movement at all, very quiet. Storage was adequate, balcony very nice. Bed not very comfortable.
