Evening meals were the worst we have encountered in seven years of cruising.  Cooks seemed to be lacking in common sense cooking.  Too many spicy and exotic tastes.  Seemed to be trying too hard to impress.   All six guests at our table agreed, and one couple had been on many Royal

Carribbean cruises.  The Thanksgiving meal was a particular disappoinment.


Evening entertainment had possibly two really good shows.  The rest were forgettable.  We were barely able to enjoy your Social Director.  His

being of English nationality,  we were barelly able to understand anything he said during the times he spoke in public.  He also talked too fast.

your audiences are primarily American(?) and this should be taken into consideration for listening ears.


We particularly enjoyed the ice show as real entertainment.
