Royal Caribbean trying to be Carnival!

Sail Date: January 03, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

We normally LOVE Royal Caribbean, but this ship was the exception....decor was like an IKEA store and the food of poor quality.  The entertainment and staff were as usual FABULOUS, but they didn't make up for the overall feeling that RC dumbed this ship down to a Carnival level....very disappointing. They are making motions to change their errors, but you won't catch us on this ship again, although we will be returning to RC.

Cabin / Stateroom
It was smaller than the same type room on other ships, but there was more storage. It was clean. The decor was like something out of an IKEA catalog....but that was all over this ship.
