Wonderful experience for the family, but the meals and ports of call were lackluster.

Review summary

As I noted above, my family of 10 (including me) had a wonderful time due to the offerings on the ship. We were all extremely disappointed with food, so much so that we would not book another cruise with Royal Caribbean. We have gone on many cruises with other cruise lines and have never had anything bad to say about the meals. Very disappointing!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The ships main dining room was good but I never got one piece of good tasting, well prepared fish the entire cruise, nor surprisingly was there any desert claiming to be "chocolate" that actually tasted like chocolate. The buffets were repetitive, with a lackluster variety, and generally not well prepared. It was a hardship to get an egg white omelet for breakfast.
