This was a family vacation for 20+ people. We decided on RC primarily based on the destinations. This ship was in a bad repair, and the crew didn't seem to care. While I can overlook things like frosted glass, a little bit of rust in ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the itinerary. Unfortunately, the itinerary changed at least 3 weeks prior to sailing, yet we were not notified until the night before with not even a message on their website. The food was mediocre at best and ... Read more
