Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Great dinners in Main Dining. Always found something we liked. Staff was attentive and the bar waiter Gypsy was the absolute best ever. Kept up with our refreshment package drinks and CAC preloaded drinks every night

Chops Grille

3 out of 5

We actual found the surf and turf that we ordered in the main dining room prepared better and enjoyed better. Would not do Chops again

Giovanni's Table

Jamie’s lunch was incredible. A must do. The cost of dinner here not worth the charge when the lunch menu is identical except for the lamb chops. We will definitely do lunch again

Took the guacamole making class and had a phenomenal lunch after. Everyone agreed it was the best guacamole ever!!

Onboard Activities

Pools were great. Having multiple pools helped with congestion. Not really the active traveler so didn’t try rock climbing etc.

Grease was outstanding. Saw it twice because once was not enough. Didn’t care for Columbus...left 5 minutes in. The ice show was fantastic. The aqua show was rescheduled twice because of weather and didn’t get to see it because of another show that was offered at same time. Comic Romano was great, the other one not so much.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
The overall staff experience was amazing except for the policy of RCCL to run constant preauthorizations to accounts that are not cash funded. Used my debit card and by day 5 I had holds on funds that totaled $500 MORE than my current bill. And the holds don’t drop off for 7-10 days. Was unable to use my bank card for rental car and hotel stay post cruise because the funds were tied up with all these preauthorizations that exceeded actual spending. Very poor policy and could not get anyone onboard who could release the holds and just run the actual charges

Love Central Park. Such a unique experience

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Roomy. Good layout. Plenty of closet spaces. Wish bathrooms were bigger

Ship tip

Do not use debit or prepaid card for account because the preauthorizations and holds will tie up funds for 7-10 days.
