Great Cruise but Mediocre Food

Sail Date: May 27, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The cruise was wonderful.   We have been on Carnival Cruises previously and had even higher expectations for Royal Caribbean food.    We were greatly disappointed by the food!   It was tasteless for the most part, steaks were tough and some of the hot food we were served was cold.  I told our waiter in the dining room what I wanted one time and he tried to talk me out of it to a cheaper cut of steak.  Our sitting was not handled well in the dining room either.   The Windjammer was some better with breakfast being the best!   Overall the food was a total disappointment.   The stateroom, with balcony, was great.   The service there was excellent almost to the point of being around too much.  :-)  The movies they showed at the pool could not be heard so that was not well planned by the ship.   The cruise director was good and funny!    The shows were good with our favorite being Fast Forward.
