good all around cruise

ship is getting tired, but understand she goes into refurbishment in Dec 2012, so until then you will see a lot of old banged up furniture, etc. everything was clean and well maintained.

good cruise

Best part of the cruise were the ports. Also, the ship looked good, fresh paint ,etc. The wifi is terrible. It is slow and hard to log on. I even paid for the upgraded wifi. I was also using updated and new iPhones and iPads. I was able to get a refund because of the poor service but still would like to have had access. Boarding in Barcelona was easy and timely. Leaving in Tampa was easy and quick but the lines outside for busses, taxis and other transport were impossible. Took over an hour and a half to get picked up by rental car company because of all the confusion and crowds.

great cruise, tired ship

Cruise ports were ideal and very interesting, two ports had to tender to shore due to no dock and some people were un-happy with that but its the only way in some ports. The food in the main dining room was a little below normal for RCI, the beef was so bad I had to return two meals for being tough and full of fatty gristle. The ship was very tired and badly needed a face lift. Also, had some mechanical issues such as stabilizers not working completely. As a consequence, the ship was heading to dry dock after our cruise for a two week re-fresh. But it probably should have gone to dry dock months ago. 

I also heard a lot of complaining from a lot of different people for a variety of reasons, even in the Diamond lounge and Concierge Lounge. Unusual for this level of cruising.

nice cruise, great ship

The one BIG negative is the new emergency drill video. It is painful to watch, reminds me of a cartoon and NO-BODY paid attention after about 2 min. Because of this terrible video it takes twice as long to do get the drill info. Almost 40 min. from the time you arrive until you are released. They need to stop the video and return to personal instruction and demonstration.

good ports and fun crew

good ports of call for touring, crew were all very helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs.

ship could use a facelift, it was clean but tired looking.

this ship in sydney sometimes tenders to port and is usually a huge problem off loading and on loading. wait to board can take 3 hours standing with no places to sit. just be aware if you tender to the ship its going to be a zoo.

best cruise overall for ports and adventure

Every port was an adventure, great vistas, lakes, mountains. The ship and staff were great as usual. Being a Diamond member of the Crown and Anchor Society was an exceptional experience on this cruise. Because of late booking got an outside cabin on deck three but it was very good, quiet and near the elevators. Had to use my time dining ( first time) and was pleasently surprised. Good table every night and the staff was great.

Cruise Tips

if you do specialty restaurants go first two days of cruise, usually half off.

Malaga, Spain

old town area very fun for shopping and eating. people are very friendly.

Fun ship goes to good ports. Service staff were very good. I'm not impressed with specialty restaurants their food just doesn't taste like anything. Rita's cantina is good tough.

Rita's crab shack over priced and over rated. Food can sometimes be a challenge in the main dining room.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

historic and beautiful,only draw back were the crowds, must have been 10,000 people visiting that day with 5 cruise ships docked at the same time.

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey

great tour visiting the ruins. crowds were huge and distracting. probably 4 cruise ships docked at the same time.

Cozumel, Mexico

one visit is certainly enough. any more that one hour ashore and you will be ready to return to the ship.
