Review summary

our favorite part of the cruise was the deck plans and the décor, good food, extremely pleasant staff personnel.

our disapointments : Very small our cabin, could not get of the bed properly, could not get to the phone from the desk, very small bathroom and specially very small shower stall.

my wife and I have cruised about 18 times. Mostly Caribbean, Europe and China.

we would cruise with RCL more if the cruise was available from New Orleans.

Food and Dining

happy about the food varieties, would have been nice to know ahead of time what food was going to be served on the Jade station ahead of time, one sprinkle station not enough, pizza on promenade was very poor quality. we had a very poor table location in the 3rd floor dining room

the only show we enjoyed a great deal was the ice skating show, the singers from NY were the worst of all, the magic show was way below par.

Service and Staff
