Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryThe food was OK, however the variety of food could have been better. We sailed couple of times before with royal, this was now june 9,2011, and we have seen a big difference with their food choices. It was much better five years ago. Also, we tried Portofino restaurant, again 5 years ago, we found that was also better then. The ship is very clean, the staff is extremly friendly and curtious and they do go absolutely out of their way to please you. However, my biggest disappointment was that when I talked to quite a few European passengers (about 10) they all told me that they have a flat screen TV. We didnt have it. So, I came to the conclusion that they have certain cabins, updated for Europeans. That should all be updated. Also, I must add, that as far as price for the cruise, this was most costly compare to our cruise just last year . Last year we took Princess from Bklyn NY, same number of days.
