This was the poorest cruise we have been on to this point.  The menu in the dining room left a lot to be desired and after 10 days we had many repeats and they weren't even well prepared the first time.  The wait staff at night was great, but the rest of the time, they could use a lot of training.  The cleanliness of the ship was not up to par.  The movies were repeated and not everyone likes science fiction.  The entertainment was not what we expected for Royal Caribbean and the technical crew was less than professional quality.  Activities we participated in were okay at best and some that we were expected to pay additional for, we did not join.  Roberta and her jewelry classes were great.  We attended each one and had many mementos to bring home.  All in all, this cruise was not what we expected and we will not be cruising out of the Port of Baltimore in the near future.  On a good note, one of our pieces of luggage was lost and we were notified of its location prior to our arrival home.  FedEx delivered within 48 hours, so that was a good thing.
