The people working on the boat were very nice.

The shows were great.  We enjoyed karaoke.

The lines for everything was awful.  Our bed was rock 

hard!  I woke up in pain several times through out

each night.  And the worst part was how hot and 

stuffy the boat was!  It ruined our re-do honeymoon.

My husband and I are really upset with the amount 

of money we spent for such horrible conditions.

We bought the drink package, which was a huge

waste of money because we were so hot most of the 

time we needed water to hydrate our bodies and 

couldn't enjoy a frozen cocktail.  So that was $700 

down the drain!!  We should get a refund, 100% refund 

for what we spent on the cruise and drink packages.

The Royal theater was so hot every time we were in 

there and the seats were really uncomfortable.

We could never find a good seat to see the stage

either.  You either had a giant pole blocking your view

or the balcony cut off the top part of the stage because 

it was so low.  I couldn't image how much worse it

would have been if I had my kids.  I didn't see

much activities for them to do.  The pool was a joke!

Max capacity 26?!?  It was so packed everytime

we were on that deck I never got in.
