My wife and I have cruised with RCCL 4 other times, on lesser ships, and this is the worst cruise we have been on. The food was horrible. The food at Jade and the Windjammer is the absolute same everyday. Hardly anyone was at the buffet on the last days because you get sick of the food. Aside from maybe one more entree choice in the main dining room, the food was the same as the buffetts. The lemonade and juices were watered down. The movie theater seats are horrible and most people leave before the movie is over. They said they were first run movies, but they weren't and they were edited for language. We are adults and realize that there is sometimes inappropriate language in movies. A lot of the arcarde games were broken. Our room keys were constantly demagnitizing and when we got them replaced, they pretty much blamed it on us. Other people on our floor were also having problems getting locked out of their cabins. There were constant charges on our account that were not authorized. The entertainment sucked. Can only watch the Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers so many times. They had a 13 time Star-Search winner as a head-liner. When was the last time Star-Search was on? Same game shows, "love and marriage", the dating game, the quest, as other cruises--very boring and predictable. Disembarking was a nightmare--had to carry luggage down 4 flights to get off. Boat was late leaving the port--7 hours late--never told why but crews were working under the back of the boat. And finally there was a terrible odor coming from the toilets. On a good note, adventure ocean was wonderful. Our 10 and 15 years olds loved their programs and seperate areas of the ship and they do have a pretty good sports deck.
Almost jumped overboard!
