Christmas Cruise

Sail Date: December 21, 2013

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Inside

The cruise and ports were all very nice.  We had a problem with pool deck chairs on the days at sea.   a person from a family would get up at 6 a.m. and reserve an entire row of deck chairs with towels for their whole family some of which would not show up all day.  We asked the pool attendant every day at sea to help since in the compass there was a rule stating no saving of deck chairs and 30 minute max away from the chair before it could be used by another guest.   but RCL refused to enforce this rule and my family went without a deck every day at sea while tons of them sat empty with nothing but towels on them.  it was so obnoxious i doubt i will book another RCL cruise unless it is just so inexpensive i will tolerate all my days at sea being ruined.  additionally i went to guest services to help me out with deck chair situation they were also unable to help.   other cruise lines like Disney have a handle on this situation but evidently RCL does not.   RCL does not realize for the people that don't save chairs and that follow the rule in the compass their days at sea are ruined.

Tip

excellent ports however the deck chairs on sea days is not good. RCL does not enforce the no saving of deck chairs rule and it is impossible on a sea day to get a deck chair unless you get up at 6 a.m. and reserve one.
