As a former guest on Royal Caribbean cruises (actually 7) - I was somewhat disappointed to notice a decline in services and amenities on the ship - No more midnight buffets - no captain's dinner nor did not see captain even once - no appearance at all - dining took up to 2 hours sometimes to complete dinner - some of the shows were only at 730 pm - so it didn't matter what time your dinner seating was - as it was not possible to attend those shows as the dinning took so long.  Entertainment was not of good quality - as the shows had no theme at all - just very talented folks doing song and dance numbers.  

Just not what I expected from Royal Caribbean - will try another cruise line next time.
