Caribbean Cruise

Sail Date: November 30, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

I felt the cruise itself was fine, perfect weather, clean quarters and well kept ship.  The food, however, on this particular cruise did not seem up to par.  On every other cruise we have taken, I could not say enough about the food.  The exception, however, was Chops Grille.  Everything in there was superb!

Also, to me, the cruise this time seemed to lack a bit of personal touch. We hardly ever saw our stateroom attendant (he always did his job), we just didn't see him.  We used to get little candies on our pillow at night, fresh ice every day and little things like that.  We did not receive an invitation to the Captain's Champagne Welcome, which we always do.  The entertainment was not the greatest this time either.

Enough of the criticism.  It sounds like we did not enjoy the cruise, which we did.  We definitely would cruise with Royal Caribbean agai.
