This was the third time we had cruised on this ship. The first was in 2003 when the ship was only a couple years old. Last year we took a 16 day Transatlantic, and enjoyed both immensely. This time, we took advantage of last minute pricing. The ship was just refurbished in December of last year, and looks great with all the new carpet and other fresh touches. The new Sabor restaurant is outstanding. On this trip, there seemed to be many crew members in training, and although the service we received was great, there seemed to be something "off" with them. There seemed to be morale problems...you noticed it when they weren't engaged with a guest. Not many smiles. Also, they need to update the mattresses and the pillows...both are too hard for my taste. I am a big fan of RCCL, and cruise with them pretty much exclusively. Although this cruise was not the best one I have taken with them, it was still significantly better than those I have taken with other cruise lines. And I would still recommend them highly.
