Review summary

Once we were getting off the cruise, staff acted like they couldn’t get rid of us fast enough. I probably wouldn’t sail with RC again … I think Disney spoiled us. You need more to do on at sea dats.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was very cafeteria like. I got the soda package and there was one main machine on the whole ship and most of the time it was out of Diet Coke. No salt and pepper provided with room service.

Nice staff and food was better than specialty restaurants

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I enjoyed Bingo. I wish more of the movies had been inside. More craft activities would be good and a non-smoking casino.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I couldn’t understand half the staff. One lady in the gift shop terrified me she was so curt. While the staff for our room was very nice, only got a towel animal twice and never did find out his name.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very 80s … needs an update.
