While we had great time with the excursions and amenities, dealing with the rude kids and their parents was the worst on this cruise.  We only get to cruise during the summer because my wife is a teacher and this cruise had the worst kids and even worse parents.  One night, after the 10 pm, while trying to enjoy piano player at the Schooner Bar a grandmother camped out 8 grand kids while the parents were in the casino. Needless to say they took up a large portion of the bar and were only there to play on their phones and pads.  All kids were under 8 and 2 spent most of the time asleep.  When I brought this up to the staff and a supervisor I was told there was nothing they could do because it wasn't off limits to kids.  So after tipping the waiters we left and didn't return.  And won't return on summer cruises out of Galveston.  We're looking forward to a Adult Only resort we have already booked for next summer.  

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Windjammer food gets old after day 2 and I even had to send 2 dinners back in the main seating dinner because they were just plain nasty. Avoid their recommended Fried Fish and Shrimp. Fish were no better than an frozen fish from the store. Best money spent was spending 3 nights dinning in the specialty dining restaurants.

Royal needs to start adding more Adults only areas and enforcing their No Kids under 16 in the areas marked other than the casino.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was great. While you may not get all the extras with a Grand Suite or above the Jr. Suite has an amazing balcony and very comfortable. Ruan Benjamin, our Stateroom Attendant was great.
