Review Summary

This was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean and we were not very impressed. The entertainment is just mediocre and the food is absolutely awful.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Being a chef, I know that it is very difficult to feed so many people in such a short period of time. However, it was very clear to me that the Executive Chef and Executive Sous Chef are not paying any attention to the quality of food. Unseasoned and overcooked food is just a sign of poor leadership in the kitchen. One particular dish I must mention is the braised t-bone of lamb, this was just uneatable or in other words, disgusting. The overall food quality is very, very poor. Very disappointing.
