Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

we have sailed with R.C. Before and have had good experiences, but not as good this time.  After paying top dollar for this cruise, we could not even get the cruise line to press a suit without a fee.  We had no perks added onto our original cruise price, so we paid extra for everything, including water and sodas. They offered a tour of the galley and ship bottom, but of course this was extra also. Really, we were not paying to see the ship workings. The food at the buffet was generally mediocre...not hot..lukewarm!  I must give credit to housekeeping...very excellent and the servers in the main dining room worked very hard and tried very hard to please us.
