Very disappointed with this cruise. It was not up to the standard that I would normally get on royal Caribbean cruises.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
We were very disappointed with the main dining menu, and we ate mostly in the Windjammer. English tea bags were not available from day 2. And I had to go searching and asking waiters if they had any. Some had some access to some and I would have got one. As a te drinker, I was really angry and disappointed and had to try and get tea bags. On of the mornings they ran out of bread and there was no toast!

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
There was very little fitness area and there was no crazy golf as on other ships.

The staff on board were very good

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
As it was a small ship we felt cramped as we are used to a bigger ship. The ship was well maintained and kept clean

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was kept clean and tidy, the room attendant was very informative and helpful.

Ship Tip

If this was the first experience, it would be ok.

Boston, Massachusetts

We went to Cape Cod which was excellent. However we were longer on the bus due to an accident (not drivers fault) which had a knock on affect and caused a traffic jam. The boat trip was cancelled as there was high swell.

Portland, Maine

It was okay. I wouldn't want to go back there.
