All in all it was a wonderful cruise. The ship was sparkling clean at all times and the crew\, attendants and waiters were friendly and very helpful. There was an outbreak of norovirus on the second day and this impacted the entire cruise. Although we did not get sick\, the routines changed drastically. Instead of serve yourself buffets\, we were required to be served by the staff. We certainly understood the precaution but it made that part of the trip less appealing. The one thing that we were disappointed in was the food. Whether it was the buffet or the dining room\, it was often cold or luke warm. In the dining room\, where we ate every night\, it was as if the vegetables and potatoes were put on the plates early and then the meat or fish\, etc. were put on later. The food on the buffet was common and boring and also often not hot enough. I think we expected more since last year we took a cruise on the Carnival Elation and the food on that cruise was excellent and one of the highlights. We expected more on Royal Carribbean. Also\, there seemed to be a lot of extras that we were asked to pay for\, such as\, if we wanted fresh squeezed orange juice at breakfast\, it was an additional charge. In addition\, the photos were twice the amount that Carnival charged last year.
