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.

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.

Ship Tip

Book restaurants well in advance.
