I missed the Royal Carribean standards.

Sail Date: August 18, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The toilet in our cabin smelled like urine even after our stateroom was cleaned. The food choices were very limited. Room service menu items were salads and sandwiches and the main dinner entrees weren't an option for room service. After returning on the ship from exploring a part of the Bahamas, we returned to no food on the buffet of the Lido deck! Food choices were pizza, sandwiches or burger/fries which all had lines that we stood in for over 20 minutes! The pizzas were personal sized, provided 4 slices and were being brought out from the oven space one at a time!!?! The room service attendant was rude asking, "What were you sleep or something?" when he brought my order (an hour later) after 10pm because it took me 40 seconds to get to the door.

The waterworks portion was enjoyed by my toddlers, but inconsistencies were present there too. The "monitor" allowed by toddlers to go down the water slide once then prohibited them from returning because they didn't meet the height requirement. They returned down the steps crying uncontrollably.
