Review summary

The Ship is definitely starting to show its age, and our balcony room did not feel very clean. Our room steward was grood and kept room freshened up during the14 day cruise. There was NOT near enough to do on the 8 sea days, and the entertainment was the worst I have seen in my lifetime of cruising! Evening shows were extremely low budget and were the worst we have ever seen on royal! Ice show was Great but they don't require tickets anymore and it was a Mad rush to get seats! Their are 3,100 people on the ship and studio B holds 400!!, Incredibly poor planning on royals part! Main dining room food was good and our waiters were Great! Food in the windjammer was good for breakfast but seriously lacking for lunch! Lunch menu was almost the same for the entire 14 day cruise and very limited in options! Late night food was non existent as the only place open after 9pm was the pathetic cafe! Everywhere you go you are plegged with crew trying to Up-Sell you something, and by day 2 you are sick of it! Afternoon activities especially with the 8 sea days were all but non existent, they should have at least played some new release movies in the theater like they did in the past. The Cruise was definitely geared towards the 50-80 year old crowd.  All in all the cruise was not on par with what we've seen in the past.

Main dining room was good. Windjammer was good for breakfast but terrible for lunch! Menu repeated almost every day over the 14 day cruise!

Onboard Activities

8 sea days with almost nothing to do! Definitely catered toward the 50-80 crowd.
