RCCL not what it used to be

Sail Date: January 24, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We have really liked Royal Caribbean in the past. This trip did not measure up. The staff seemed tired and low energy. The dining room and food in general was average at best. The maitre 'd in our dining room was inept. Our cabin steward was okay. Our one meal at Chops Grillr was excellent. 

We will try other cruise lines before returning to RCCL - if we ever return.

Overall very easy. Especially glad to get off of the ship.

Go to the specialty restaurants instead of the main dining room. Windjammer is poor. Excessive amounts of salt in almost everything.
