Way over-priced 🤐

The ports were Great!

The ship was very big and very clean as it is brand new.

The dining room food was just okay and sometimes unedible.

Specialty Restaurant (Chops Grille) was a disaster.  Steak was sent back twice as was raw.  The manager did not charge us (except for 2 glasses of wine). So our anniversary gift special meal was not eaten.  What a disappointment for a big cruise line like Royal Caribbean.

We could not even buy a wine package as on past cruises with RCCL.  THEY ARE REALLY PUSHING ALL YOU CAN DRINK PACKAGES AT US $46.00 p/player plus Taxes.  How sad is that🤔

Two of our pre-booked shows were cancelled.  Should I go on?

This was the most expensive cruise we have ever taken.  Sure shows that BIGGER is not always better.

Barcelona, Spain
To really enjoy Barcelona we suggest you spend at least 4 days before or after your cruise as there is so much to see and do😊
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Marseille (Provence), France
La Spezia, Italy
A bus tour to Cinque Terre made our day. Worth every penny. Took it on our own right from town. Very inexpensive and the 5 villages we visited were awesome. The tour is in a 15 passenger very comfortable bus and the scenery is great!
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Naples, Italy


We went to 2 formal nights. Very few men even wore suit jackets. Majority were in dress shirts. We even saw one guy in shorts and running shoes.
