Review Summary

I have only been on one other cruise line beside rc and that's carnival. First of all I was recommended royal Caribbean by family friends saying it's more upperclass then the carnival so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Getting on the ship was fine it felt slow but their was a lot more people so understandable. Luggage came round 8 but that was fine super gentile when handling, the room tho... ahaha I got told it was much bigger then the carnival all lies, I got a room with a balcony so when I looked up the measurements online I assumed it didn't include the balcony ūüėā the room wasn't impressive had to force the¬†draws open and in one of them was a blob of foundation aha.

The cleaner for the room was awesome being a 20 year old I had a lot of late nights and mornings he would wait for ages until I left which was great because I know they don't have to do that.

Entertainment was the best /10. They had comedy a band and an ice skating rink seriously.

I had also purchased a drinks package which really worked out at the end I would drink $80- $100 worth of alcohol each day plus coffee soft drink and bottled water. What I didn't understand was if I sculled an alcoholic beverag at the pool bar I wasn't a loud to order another one for another 5 minutes wtf apparently I might go give it to a friend, why wouldn't I do that the first time then. Pool bar made the worst drinks avoid if you ever go on. Some not all bartenders were rude and just plain mean.

The casino was nice, again though with the workers their were a group of young Lebanese  men with their father looking at the tables seeing what they want to play and they stop at the crabs tables (I know that's not the name) it was all good until I saw the dealers face and he made eye contact with the other dealer and started speaking kroation and this sour attitude stayed until the men left this happened another three times.
