Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was good but slightly under seasoned. Service in main dining room was excellent. Buffet food was good.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The flowrider was fun. Adult pool section was nice but lacking in sunshine unless the sun was directly overhead.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
Disappointed in our cabin. We had a 9th floor balcony that had a strong smell of chemical the entire trip. We left our balcony door open the whole time for fresh air. It seemed like the it was to cover up something else. We reported it to our steward, the housekeeping supervisor and guest services but they wouldn't do anything about it. Unfortunately it will probably be our last RC cruise because of that.
