Review summary

May be a long time before we cruise with Royal again. We even talked with someone at the airport when leaving who thinks Carnival has passed Royal in quality.

Windjammer Marketplace

Same food every day except for the "theme" of the day selection, which was only in one section with everyone waiting to get some. Stale breads from sitting out so long, same 3 types of lunch meats every day (olive load, salami and some other unkown type ham) salad bar selections limited, same hot foods every day, burgers didn't taste like burgers

Thought the Navigator was recently remodeled? Looks exactly like it did 7 years ago, only older

Cabin / Stateroom

Smaller than I thought it would be. Lost power one day and had to call for maintenance. Toilet didn't work consistently for a few days. Called on it twice. Only thing good was the virtual balcony screen, except the day we lost power

Ship tip

Best of luck! Get the drink package to make it appear better than it is.

I was hyping up this port at work since we booked it back in June. WHY did Ma Nature think it needed to be a rainy day?!?!

Wife balanced out Saturday night, walking off ship Sunday morning and had to return because we were told a balance was still due
