Cruise employees need crash course in customer service
The boat was nice, the meals were good, and the excursions at our ports were terrific... However, this was all overshadowed by the overarching theme that the large majority of the Royal Caribbean employees on this ship were rude, didn't smile, didn't apologize when they needed to... And quite frankly didn't do anything to make us feel special or valued. We had numerous bad experiences with bartenders, casino workers, and check-in people. Our 3+ hours in the heat waiting to board the ship on Day 1 (followed by no opportunities to buy drink packages once on the boat) really set the stage. I got much better service on Norwegian and Carnival.

Book a room on the 8th floor so you can walk up or down to either the 11th or 5th floors (where most action was) ... As the elevators seemed to take FOREVER to come.
