Review Summary

Cant up load on this site. In comparison to MSC, Celebrity and CMV Royal comes way down on my list. Would have liked to visit other countries only two was given. Very ;limited. Food was great on board, the staff excellent. Would go to the area again but not with Royal Caribbean.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We used the main dinning room and the buffet and we had great meals good portion size in the dinning room and lots if more required. It was also not busy as the Asians did not tend to go to the main dinning room. The buffet was great every day tried out a different country. We liked it. Only issues was lack of seating always is. Did not go to the specialty resturant.

Onboard Activities

Did not like the stage shows very poor in my humble opinion. The musicians were great.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We hada great room steward and I tipped him at the start of the journey and we had wonderful service Reul was excellent. In the dinning room we had also great staff. I ate very well. The rest of the staff were good and I believe they made the cruise.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Compared to MSC and Celebrity I did not like the overalll design of the ship. I understand what they are trying to do but fail. The ship was kept very clean as always.
