Ship Quality
This was one of the smaller boats. It was very clean. The layout of the ship was okay. They did a good job with the space they had. There are a lot of stairs. The maps of the ship leave something to be desired. It would be nice if the RC website showed all of the levels at once.
Food and Dining
Lunch and dinner at the Windjammer sucked. The food was lukewarm, and flavorless. All of the desserts are a jello version of what they are supposed to be. Anything labeled chocolate had enough cocoa to turn it brown, but never enough to make it taste like chocolate. They also need to put out trays. Dinner in the dining room was a little better, but barely. Most of the desserts were the same as the Windjammers. The main courses were different, but still sub par quality. Breakfast in the windjammer wasnt bad.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower is only 26 inches wide.
Service and Staff
The staff around the entire ship was incredibly friendly and helpful.
