Review SummaryI may have thought more of this cruise if I had not cruised Royal Carribbean before. The food in the buffet was a disappointment much of the time. I have food allergies and limit myself to fresh salad, chicken and fish. Sometimes the salad smelled like mildew. Most of the employees could not speak English very well and had no clue as to the question I was asking them. I received confilicting directions from each one. The lunchmeat tasted like packaged and processed meat, not fresh. The food at the dining room was excellent and so was the service there. The gentleman who too care of our stateroom was wonderful. The counter for the excursion events was not always open when needed, so you had to go stand in the guest services line. When I stood in the long line for guest services, the employee did not know the answers to my questions and just read to me the directions off of the info sheet that we all had. I was misinformed about dinner. I was told I would be wait-listed and there was no assigned tables. That was wrong. I also did not know there were two elegant evenings, so we had to eat at the buffet (yuck). Sometimes a ship event did not have enough room for guests to participate, so we were crammed in like sardines (I hate that). The most disturbing event was that there were very loud kids who ran up and down the hallways screaming between the hours of 1:00am and 4:00am. I kept calling security and they only came out once. It was ridiculous.
