The Big Wait

Sail Date: October 12, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

You had to wait in line to find a table in the main restaurant, (the one you did not have to pay extra to eat in) you had to wait to get off or on the ship. If you were going to go on an excursion you had to wait. Now I been on many cruise before and I know there is some waiting in lines involved but this one was the worst by a long shot. Bigger is not always better, ever port the ship stop at there were 3400 passengers coming behind you and thats if your are the only ship in port, the only thing you did not have to wait for was the guy trying to get you to buy another drink from the bar. But by far the worst part of the cruise was how Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines nickel and dime you, there is nothing on this cruise except the food in the free restaurants that they do not charge you for. My bar bill was unbelievable and I am not a big drinker $2.00 for an 8oz. soft drink $5.00 for a 12 oz beer, $8.95 for a mixed drink. When I order a beer I asked for a cup of ice which I poured my beer into to help keep it cool and they charged me a $1.00 for the cup of ice, so I ended up paying $6.00 for a 12oz. can of beer

Pros: The cabins were nice and the food was good

Cons: Having to wait for everthing,
