one bad cruise out of seven

Sail Date: June 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship in ok shape but needed alot of attention. Food not that good and always the same thing meal after meal. Breakfast was not very fresh either. Our stateroom air didn't, work we found out later that the air in most of the ship wasn't working properly. After sweating and unable to sleep for 2 days they gave us another room that wasn't much better. We have sailed with rccl six times in a row and we did not like this particular cruise and they made no attempt to help make things better. The band on deck never played only heard them 2 or 3 times in 4 days and the entertainment through out the ship was very poor. We did enjoy the singers and dancers they were great. As platinum members for taking this many cruises with rccl they gave us 2 $5.00 hand bags and first to depart we ended up getting of and getting our bags with the last group to get of due to them unloading bags in wrong order. PS.if you want a cruise to make you feel you are getting away from the norm, all you will get is rap and hip hop played all day by a DJ with a computer no real island feel.

Pros: the shows

Cons: our air did not work ,and the explorations staff was very rude and unhelpful
