We don't go to the adult comedy shows, don't appreciate the langauge and sexual remarks.
The comedian /magician was the best show I've seen on any cruise I've ever taken. He was clean and the show was very funny and entertaining, really enjoyed it.

We sat at table 401, the Staff, Nickie, Jedan, Rey were the very best we have ever had serve us. We really felt like part of the family so to speak. next time we take the cruise again we hope they are the ones we end up with. Nickie was even helpful and friendly when we were exiting the ship. That team is very special.
The windjammer staf were excellent as well. Even though we ate buffet style, they would come to the table to say hello, and see if we needed anything, and they gladly brought it, thingslike water, corree, juice, they made us feel like welcomed guest.
The bad staff in particulr Ceasar the bartender was a fine fellow, and very friendly.
As far as any service from the staff we had to interact with they were all nice, friendly and always helpful.
Who ever is the person or persons who have trained these people is someone you should be glad you have on your team, because for sure they have made us repete cruises on Royal.
The show was OK, it was the first time they show was seen on the ship, the entertainers were ok, and I have no doubt they will get better as time goes on and they get at ease.
We really enjoyed the Cafe lata Tude, coffee was great, and the help very friendly.

Pros: Food much better than other cruise line we've been on,service was excellent

Cons: They said there was a get together for tea in the Jade room, never happened
