Review summary

The ship itself and the room were very solid and comfortable. The food and drinks were ok and sometime really good. The windjammer cafe was overcrowded with no free tables and people hoarding them and pool seats for hours. The biggest letdown was entertainment. The ship is being retired soon and it is clear that RC puts the worst options on it. The highlight were the dancing and singing crew who were doing well, but that was only for 4 days out of 12. For the rest, there were all kind of boring things with the Palladium theater having only a handful of people on some of them. If you care only about food, then this cruise is for you, otherwise there was not much to do on sea days and in the evenings. If RC decided to abandon fun on it, they should have made it clear beforehand.

Onboard Activities

Nothing to do on the ship in colder days / evening - one old ping pong table with wooden rackets and 20 people waiting at any time. Fitness center is small.

Entertainment

2 out of 5
The shows with dancers and singers were good. The rest were done by retired folks who will tell their life stories.
