Old ship

Sail Date: February 15, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

  This ship was refurbished last year, but many details showed her age.  The balcony in our stateroom was small, showing rust and the flooring was coming up.  The mattress was old and bumpy.  Who knows how old it was.  Asked for a firmer mattress and was denied. The food in the main dining room was excellent.  The buffet was weak.  Fried eggs were precooked and put under a heating lamp.  The buffet only had one toaster working and toast was pre made and put in a a basket and cold.  Bread selection was limited to 3 choices.  Other ships have 5 or 6 selections.  The lunch buffet used dutch ovens and they were old and chipped.  Entertainment was ok but not great.  In the promenade there was music but limited or no seating.  I don't believe that I would cruise RCL again.
