Review summary

it wasnt not as advertised. there were only two restaurants which while good were not outstanding. never mind johnny rockets which was a dive. there was a gay bar but nothing for straight singles to do. they did not dock in either excursion port contrary to what you are led to believe. they nickel and dime you for everything including a 90.00 fee to tour the ship!The cabin was a dump, the couch was filthy. the cabin attendant could not get it through his head i just wanted to be left alone and would call if i needed something. seeing Vietnam was wonderful but here is where they should have spent the night. as it was only five hours. after travel. i am so disappointed, especially since my last royal Caribbean was so great. too many kids as well and you would think there would be asian selections of beer. i feel like i got taken.
