Review summary

Older ship with obvious plumbing problems. Bathrooms had problems and the last day when getting off the ship, public bathrooms were locked. Went down to get off the ship at our tag time and we had to wait in line 30 minutes until we could leave. Staff is excellent and very well trained to handle customer complaints. Always have a smile on their face! I would go again but would wait until last call to get off the ship to avoid the mess on Deck 4 on disembarkation day. I think with these shorter cruises most people self assist off the ship. Also be prepared for the number of smokers on the ship. Largest I have ever seen. FYI, if you are smoke sensitive you won't be able to set anywhere outside.

Food and Dining

Windjammer certainly has some strange recipes they whip up. But this ship has a pizza place so when food choices were limited we had pizza which was pretty good!

All the staff are very eager to please. Any complaints are taken care of immediately.

Ship Quality

The public restrooms seemed to be closed more often than open and day of leaving the ship were locked. The smoking was horrible. Saw a man vaping in the dining area upstairs. No one stopped him. Fact is there were so many smokers they were smoking everywhere. In all my years of cruising I have never seen so many people smoking on a ship. Our cabin steward did not always show up to clean the cabin or put out clean towels in a timely manner. Sometimes we were already in bed when they knocked on the door. Never had that happen either.

Cabin / Stateroom

Ocean view. Was OK but bathroom is small in this room.

Ship tip

If the bathroom smells, ask for a new shower curtain. They are not always changed out and begin to smell.

Key West, Florida

Long lines again. RCL seems to like to have all their passengers line up and then stand for 30 to 40 minutes to get off the ship.
