This was our third cruise with rcl,in our cabin 8323 cleaning crew was ok, first night we had very little hot water for our shower, i called guest services they fixed it right away,we started to have a rotten egg smell in the sink seems like it was coming out of the overflow vent in the sink, that same smell on deck five forward section starboard side, very strong smell as you exited from elevator to outside  where all life boats,are,THE second night dinner deck 5 my time dining table 140 waiter and asst were excellent but while eating, slight vibration in the area walking or sitting, the next night was much worse everyone was talking about it .That night they had  the pic with capt,i asked about the bad vibration,the.Capt of the ship,said we have a bearing on the prop shaft going out and are supposed to have it fixed in feb..ALSO during dessert imagine you are handed a menu all torn and shredded on the sides and stained why dont they throw it out ?not recirculate old embarrassing menus.i took a pic,then while at the pool getting towels clean but the one i got was so stained i didnt want to lay on it, other than these things everything was nice.Do you write about this or not, so i did maybe if these are always overlooked i can imagine what it would be like in a couple of years happy sailing gold member,
