Review summary

The ship was large and confusing, customer service was very poor, people were rude, half the elevators were broken and the working ones were constantly packed, we ended up taking the stairs almost every time. Food was HORRIBLE. Room service was even worse! Their in room entertainment was awful and advertised completely wrong. The room smelled musty and gross and the entire experience on the ship was not worth the money, at all. The Bahamas were gorgeous, but as soon as my husband and I returned to the ship we were miserable. We attempted to call and make a complaint. I wrote three separate emails and no one ever responded. I will never take a RC Cruise again, Carnival is a bit cheaper and WAY better in every way. Such a disappointment as this was our wedding anniversary.
