Loved the ports of call!  It would be hard to pick a favorite.  Cruise staff in the dining room and our cabin attendant were great.  The dealers (with the exception of Julien) were surly at best and rude on occasion.   Got very tired of having the specialty restaurants pushed all the time.  And WiFi. And drink packages. And photos. And anything else RCI can think of to get more money.   Not an all-inclusive vacation anymore.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our attendant, Ada was great. She went above and beyond. Other attendants were friendly in the hallways and made for a pleasant experience.
Children's Programs
The pool is open until 10 and several children were in the pool when movies were being shown. Barbershop 2 was inappropriate for children of any age with its bigotry and bad language.
Service and Staff
Pilarn head waiter for our tables was great! Went above and beyond! Our waiters, Endi and Samaira were great and the assistant waiter was wonderful! The dealers in the casino (with the exception of Julien, who was the bright spot) were surly. I know they're going to take my money, but they don't have to be rude when they do.
Food and Dining
Having the specialty restaurants pushed all the time makes it feel like the main dining room isnt as goid and a let down. We were treated well there


Don't miss the salad bar in the Gatsby for lunch!
