Our waiter and waitress kept making mistakes in our order and sometimes they didn't even bring us our food.  Our waitress did everything she could to make us happy even though she was very forgetful.  She was not a good waitress.  The other two RC cruises we we went on the waiting staff after the first night remembered what we drank, the meal we shared, and our specific requests each night.

The cruise director was invisible except for his TV show and the evening shows.  He wasn't very personable at all. On our past cruises the cruise director was out and about talking with us and answering any questions we may have had.  They were both fun!!  

The shows were just ok.  We've had much better shows on our other cruises.  We couldn't wait for the shows on our other trips they were something to look forward to each night.  They were very entertaining and they kept our attention.  


The stateroom attendant was great!   He called us by our name every time we saw him and he kept our room clean at all times.  The ports were fun and very relaxing.  


We will be sailing RC again!!!
