We have cruised RCL for many years with fantastic results. It appears that RCL is cutting costs in every way imaginable. We are not complainers, know that things happen and are generally quiet people. We booked a Suite for this cruise. The room was dirty beyond belief and much to my dismay, the bed was hard as a brick. This had never been the case in the past. We called to see if there was something that could be done with the bed, and was told all we can do is bring up some eggcrate, which they did, enough for half the bed! I had to sleep on the sofa in a suite because of this! The food was disgusting in the main dining roon, most nights cold, ended up eating in the windjammer from the 4th night on. The waistaff and bartender on this trip were inept at best, long waits for anything, including the so called bartender to come over and take our order DESPITE tipping handsomely at the start of the trip! I always preferred a after dinner cocktail, usually a chocolate liquor with my coffee, but guess what?? This trip, no way not available! We were never asked nor ever acknowledge by our name in the dining room, staff was always harried and hurried, it appears that RDL has cut staff to the point that service has become inferior. For the money, I recommend moving on to one of the premium lines, RCL has diminished in every way possible, suitable for bargain hunters only that are willing to accept sub par service and food...

This cruise was my 8th and my wife's 4th cruise and our 4th with RCCL. We left our house in Westchester county New York at 11:30am and arrived at the port around 12:15pm. I will start with embarkation from dropping off our bags, we went right on board and up to our room as we opened the door our luggage was right behind us (about 30minutes). The room was clean and ready. We used the Specialty Restaurants 6 out of 10 dinners as the Main Dining Room food was not up to Par. We did our own tours (private tour Bermuda) and used cab service to Orient Beach in St Marten then walked around Front street, in Puerto Rico there wasn't enough time to do anything so we took a cab up to the Forts then we were dropped off in the shopping area. We went to Barramundi as they created the Pina Colada there in 1963 and enjoyed a fantastic Pina Colada. In Labadee we had a cabana and I also did the Dragon Flight Line (FANTASTIC!!) had a lovely day at Barefoot Beach. We tried to make every show that was on the ship except the Comedian (we were still at dinner) and enjoyed them all especially the Ice Show. Luke our cruise director was always around ( we met up with him all over the ship ). My wife and I enjoyed going to the Art exhibits and bought 2 pieces of art for our home. I couldn't do any gambling because the smoke was very bad in the Casino. Chops and Portofino the service was fantastic and we also did a Wine matched dinner in Vintages which was excellent. Chops California Wine match dinner was equally excellent. Our Cabin Steward did everything she could to make our stay very pleasant and the room was always cleaned and well stocked in the bathroom. She went out of her way to decorate our room for our anniversary. Overall our trip was fantastic. Read Less
