Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Overall, we had a terrible time. It was our 5th cruise and our first on Royal Caribbean We would NOT recommend it! The food was terrible, the advertising was misleading, the service was worse than lackluster. Extremely disappointing, and I felt that I was constantly being asked for more money in addition to the $10,000 I spent for the cruise! We will never ever take another cruise aboard a Royal Caribbean ship. 

Cabin / Stateroom
The bed was not made up properly. The bathrooms were grimy. The nicest part was the balcony view.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
The bathrooms were very grimy. There was constant sitting water on the pool decks, we rarely saw anyone doing anything about it and we there were multiple people who slipped and fell. Extremely hazardous.
Destinations and Excursions
For the most part we had a wonderful time off the ship. It is really sad when you look forward to getting off the cruise ship.
Onboard Activities
Where was the conga line at pool side? The band? All activities in the evening were poorly scheduled.
Children's Programs
The shows we were able to see were amazing! Heads up- they schedule all the shows at the same time and only run them for a limited amount of days, so you will miss over half of them. All entertainment runs concurrently so you will only be entertained for a couple of hours not all night like you would find on Carnival for example.
Service and Staff
Almost everyone looked miserable. Employees bumped into us, pushed into us, and in general did not even acknowledge us as guests. I think we met a total of 12 wonderful employees. We were very disappointed. Every other cruise we have been on, you feel like a King. Everyone is smiling, having fun, we know all the employees we come in contact with by name and where they are from. Not on this cruise line!
Food and Dining
The food was awful! There was a very poor selection, and all the food places outside of the main dining room and one place they called a "buffet" (small variety and the food was awful) were closed after 6pm!!! Never thought I would go on a cruise and lose weight.


Do not sail with this cruise line!
