Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9560
Traveled As: Large Group

We always go as a big group and this was our fourth cruise. We had earlier cruised with Royal Caribbean and Carnival. The quality of food and service and that we experience on the previous Royal Caribbean and Carnival was definitely better that what we experienced on this cruise. On our Carnival cruise, the staff was much more lively and attentive to our needs than on this cruise. I am a little disappointed as we know that Royal Caribbean can do better.
