Review Summary

This was our 14th cruise and our 8th RCCL. The ship was beautifully remodeled and very clean. We have never been on a cruise that had such a old crowd. Not that I ind old, Im no spring chicken but everyone was disabled. Everything we did therefore moved at a snails pace. Got a refund for our specialty restaurants because they were terrible and we didnt want to finish them out. Had to go to customer service 9 times to get our account problems resolved. Could not get steak and lobster in steak house but I could order it in the dining room for an up charge and got better service. Really felt the sales were very pushy on the ship and needed a watch refunded and the sales associate was genuinely irritated. Just not for us. We will stick to tropical destinations and newer ships,
