Ship has been renovated but pool is very small and fills up fast - kids do not use their pool so it is a zoo- most of the staff seem unhappy- drink prices have gone up 50%- food is VERY salty- had to special order all entrees- one of the comedy show was funny and Chops food was great- ocean view room is the smallest out of all royal ships- def will not go on this ship ever again-
