Breath taking views on the outside and not so great on the inside

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This ship was old. We were lucky and did not get a room that was leaking. Everyday I would see fans set out and the smell of water in the carpets. Not sure who was the unlucky ones that got those rooms.


The dinning in the main dinning room and the Horizon dinning room were great. We did try the specialty dinner steak house and it was not good for us. The other couple with us said there food was great. My wife's steak was burned to a crisp.


It felt like they were trying to sell you something everywhere you went. 


Not a lot to do on the boat. We have taken several cruises with Royal Carribean and they seemed to have a tremendous amount more things to keep you busy.


The magician show was amazing. One of the best I have seen.


The boarding and un-boarding process was very effiecient.


Seveal of the works struggled to undersand English. You had to repeat several times.

Nothing to do here but look at a garden. Not for me.


Cost way to much to get one of the many rooms that were experiencing wet floors. We used hall ways to get from one end of the boat to the other. Not part of the time but every time you walked down a hall way you saw big fans set out to dry up water. Thank the Lord we did not get one of those rooms!
