not what I expected from a Royal Cruise

Sail Date: July 06, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The variety of food in the dining area at night was not what we had on other cruises Royal or others as well as the deserts. The main dinning room was supposed to be inclusive-- yet they had a pricing list if you wanted something not on the menu like lobster. We had a 1 night only show for a comedian on a 7 day cruise when on past cruises we had 4. Many times activities were bunched together so you had to pick one and the next day you were hunting for something to do. We had problems with our scuba excursion and found no help from Royal even thou it was booked thru them. Music entertainment was not good, Zig Zag, as well as if you want any peace and quiet don't get a room anywhere near the centrum. I believe a much larger boat is the way to book a cruise. The balcony cabin fold out couch is really a chair. Best part of the cruise was Jarvis, best bartender, at the Schooner Bar.
