I was very disappointed with this cruise experience. I expected more from RCI.
The food selection was poor and the food quality was disappointing. I felt the buffet area was not cleaned to a high standard. There was trash and food on the floor on the back patio. Things in general seemed to be disorganized. They would only open one side of the buffet in the morning for breakfast, so food was picked over and the wait for omelets was ridiculous. There seemed to be lack of activities on board. Evening theater performances started late on 2 occasions.
On a positive note.....the room was nice and service was good. The evening entertainment over-all was good. The shore excursions were good.

We did not try any of the specialty restaurants, but from others who did.....the experience and quality of the food was not worth the extra money.
