Curse of the hot tub

Sail Date: February 08, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Cruise ok but got finger infection from bacteria in hot tub. Will never ever go in public tubs. These tubs can never be bacteria free. Too many people going in them and film lurks in jets, piping. Don't trust with all Legionnaires, rash, infections from poor hygiene of guests. Medical not much help. Should immediately want to see any guest for comp evaluation with infectious disease to avoid epidemic. Had to get own antibiotics in Belize. Ship medical fees expensive $$$. Also feel wifi should be reasonable $ and Compass could b on smartphones, save all that paper! Most want to send quick messages back home, not linger. Being out of touch is frustrating.
Chef not great this trip, main dining, somewhat dissapointed. Showtime should b weekly planner, not morning of show. We like to know.
staff not informed on shows. Toilets jammed 6th level, no help to guests. Why not save few empty cabins for emergency moves, make their trip not a complaining disaster? They will never cruise RCL if not treated right, why aggregate them? Just sayin...
we've done 16 various cruises...but not dedicated to one line. Overall good trip for us....

Good shops. short day, should b longer time. scares guests, worry if breakdowns.

Don't miss Ice Dancin. Get ticket, wait in line early, get in if no shows.
