We've been on a few other cruises, all with Royal Caribbean.  This one wasn't quite "up to snuff" for us, but much of our dissatisfaction wasn't directly due to anything Royal Caribbean had any control over.  Because of local protests related to local political issues, we left Labadee shortly after arriving and passengers were not allowed off the ship. Falmouth, Jamaica was quite disappointing as a cruise destination. And once we left Cozumel and headed back to the port we experienced constant winds of 50-60 mph and of course the ocean was very rough.  So, while we can't blame Royal Caribbean, this cruise wasn't the usual winner we've become accustomed to.

This time around we only visited the dining room for dinner twice. The dining room portions were a bit skimpy, and the Windjammer food was very good.
