This was our 1st cruise on Royal Carribean, we have sailed 12 times with Carnival and I must say I prefer Carnival better. We had heard so much about RC and wanted to experience new ship lines to see if they were better. And we found that RC was not!! We did not like the dining menu's  or the Windjammer food service. You have to get in line for every different kind food-drinks, meat, salad, desert and was always a hassle with the lines everywhere. Our suite was nice, the ship was beautiful. The shops onboard was way too expensive and not good variety. I don't think we shall sail with RC again!
