Review summary

Unfortunately, it was rainy 4 out of 5 days. Would have been more fun if it had been sunny but RC cannot be blamed for the weather.

Not as fast and efficient as others I have been on but not terrible.

Performers were very good. Shows could have been better.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Steward kept the room clean. Dining room wait staff was very attentive. Bar waiters were not pushy and didn't make you feel like you need to leave if you didn't want to order a drink right away.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
I have no complaints about the design or layout. I felt that the common areas were not as clean as they should have been. Cups and plates lying around.

Cabin / Stateroom

Enjoyed the cabin and balcony. It was bigger than we expected and was kept very clean.

Ship tip

Shows are limited. Make sure you make the time to see the one you're interested in.
