Review summary

Overall it was a nice cruise. I just wished I didn't feel like RCC wasn't reaching in my pocket for my last dollar every minute. Positive note: limits at table games were very reasonable for a captive audience.

Food and Dining

Windjammers was good, not great. Appetizers in main dining room were good, main courses not so good, desserts good. Alcoholic beverage prices WAY TOO HIGH! $9.50 for a domestic beer, come on! You make it prohibitive for light drinkers to get the occasional beer or mixed drink. Also, figure out a way to allow only one person in a cabin to buy the drink package. I would have bought it if I didn't have to buy it for my wife too. You missed out on $200 more from me.

Like most third world countries it is very poor and run down. Felt like the rum cake factory was more of a patronage and not a tour. No info on how they were made, just a sales pitch. Distillery was interesting but nobody was working.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

Water park should be included. Paying for this seems like extortion. there was a pervasive smell (due to tides i assume) Costs for cabana's bed's, etc. are way too high.
