We took the 3-dayer over Thanksgiving weekend. The embarkation went smooth. The food was excellent in the dining room, in the Windjammer, the food was not the greatest. They only had 2 people serving a line of say 30 people at a time, and food was a little bland.The staff was really freindly most of the time, except for some of the bartenders.The entertainment was great, they always seemed to have something going on. The cruise director and staff were a lot of fun, and seemed sincere.We had a problem with the hot water, it was either too hot or ice cold, I called, they sent a plumber right away, but after he left we had cold H20 again.We went scuba diving at CocoCay. It was fun -- the staff was very professinal, but the water was a little cold!!!!!!On CocoCay because of the construction, I was a little annoyed that they were hammering the day we were there, trying to nap and relax. It bothered me so much, that I yelled to the workers over the fence to cool it for a couple hours, so we could relax. The noisy work should be done on the days the cruise ship is not there! Am I wrong?On Monday morning when we were departing, I had ordered room service the nite before (using the door hanger) for 6am, so we could eat before we got off the boat. Room service never showed, and we had to run to the Windjammer before they closed, that upset me a little.Overall, it was a grat cruise, but we were spoiled because we last traveled to the Caribbean on the Voyager of the Seas. The boat and the crew were brand new and we were treated like kings! I probably won't travel on one of the smaller, older Royal Caribbean boats in the future. I guess you get what you pay for with R.C.Frank K., Florida
