Review SummaryInitially paid for a stateroom in front of the ship with a large window for oceanview. I checked into the room just prior to the ship leaving the port. As the ship departed the port I heard the ship engines start up and continued to rumble extremely loud. I was laying on the bed and it started to shake as if an earthquake was in progress. I immediately ran out into the hallway to ask the porter what was going on and he told me that the ship was just leaving port. I informed him of the bed shaking and the loud rumbling noise in my room # 3504. (Do not pick this room or any room in the vicinity.) The porter informed me that this was usual and that the noise would stop after we reached the open seas. I learned that anytime the ship excelled, I would experience the same rumbling noise and bed shaking. I asked guest services to move me to a different room and they compiled however the new room was a lower class then originally booked and did not have a window but was close to the middle of the ship. The new room was good and I did not hear the ship's engines roaring any more however whenever the ship turned, I felt the movement in my new room and all over the ship. This was my third time taking a cruise and my first time on a Royal Caribbean ship. Now I understand why people say they got seasick on a cruise ship. The ship was unstable in majority of the common areas, eg, in the casino, daily dining area, my stateroom, on the pool deck, etc. I could not sit by the window in the main dining areas without feeling dizzy. Another problem is the fact that soda & water are not included in the cost of your cruise. The water dispensed from the so-called filtered water machine in the main dining room gave me diarrhea every day on the ship until I figured out what was the culpit and stopped drinking it. In addition, I discovered that any food products made with the water also gave me diarrhea. example the pancakes, the orange juice drink, etc. I stopped eating these things and the diarrhea went away. I do not recommend this ship or this entire cruise line as I have used Carnival for two different trips and did not experience any of the above.
