While my husband and I thoroughly enjoy cruising, especially on RCCL, we were just a little disappointed with our dining experience.  The cause may have been inexperience with our wait staff and we completely understand that.  We just didn't feel that it was A+ like our previous cruises have been.  On the flip slide, our drink waiter (Antonio) was on top of it at every meal and even when we saw him on the pool deck.  He was always eager to please and even had a drink waiting for my husband every night.  Our other issue was with the port of Galveston.  I'm not sure what needs to be done to get that port more organized, but it took us three hours to get off the ship, through customs and to our RCCL shuttle to the airport.  We have never had to wait like that before.  We arrived in Galveston the day before sailing and we did not have a rental car.  The City of Galveston does not offer Uber and cabs were very difficult to get.  On the day of sailing, we first went to church and then to a small café for breakfast.  We called for a cab when we were paying a bill and an hour later (and after calling the cab company three times), we still did not have a cab.  Even though we enjoyed being in Galveston, I don't think we would ever cruise out of that port again.
