Royal Caribbean has gone downhill since our last cruise Feb 6, 2012.

Sail Date: September 04, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Favorite part was the entertainment.  The only decent meal was served by one of their specialty restaurants (incredible).  A major disappointment was the ports we visited.  You get off the ship and walk into a compound where you are fenced in and forced to shop at ship owned shops (no deals).  The only way to escape the compound was to purchase a high priced excursion.  For the most part the wait help was excellent.  Our first morning, we awoke with back issues.  We worked it out during the day and then it starts all over again the next morning.  Must be the bed.    

Cabin / Stateroom
First few days the water got so hot you could burn yourself. Then the was no hot water. We loved the larger size balcony. The bed was a killer. Could not get Fox News on the TV. The cabin was well maintained and clean.

We love Galveston but believe the city does not handle the cruise traffic very well at all.
