Review Summary

We have been on 8 cruises with Carnival. This was our first with RC and our last. The ship was OK but we just found to many things onboard that we just didn't agree with. Cover charge for Johnny Rockets really Guys burgers free Carnival. Convince fee for room service really? free on Carnival. No free laundry room available on Carnival. Food Avg. at best. I could go on but I'll just let it go.

Very friendly crew. Only thing we noticed was our room steward just did't reach out to us like the ones on Carvinal.

Long walk to town or Pay to get there. I think RC should provide free transportation when docking that far out of town.

Skagway, Alaska

4 out of 5
Once again unless your luckey enough to get the town port you walk a long ways or pay.

Victoria, British Columbia
