Review SummaryThere was a cover for 4 of the restaurants and then there were high charges once you were there for appetizers, seafood and drinks. So you would pay 20$ a piece to go and then pay for the food on the menu.
In the main dining hall the food was always very slow and cold. It seemed like they didn't want you there. They tried to push us to the other paying restaurants the first night of the cruise.
We had not been away with out the kids for 5 years and on the second night we were so put off we found ourselves wishing we were back home.
It was freezing inside and hot outside, I had the heat on in our room. We ordered at the bar and 40 minutes later I asked if the food would be coming out soon (wings and fries) and they looked at me like I was crazy. They hadn't put the order in. The bar didn't show the Pittsburgh play off game. The buffet has few choices and the last night it was all curry dishes and some pasta. We heard other couples joking about the first cruise they may have lost weight on. The internet connection was advertised but then when we saw that it was 75 cents a minute on our own lap top we passed. Room service seemed agitated that we were calling. Juice and tea were included and they watered down the juice and the tea was super strong. I love ice tea and I could not drink it. This was our first cruise and we were so excited to go. The other couples on board were very friendly. Next time I am sure we will just go to a resort and skip the rocky boat and rude service.

Pros: the private Island, our room attendant, the Del Sol shop, comedian
Cons: the food, the service, the reservations desk not speking much English, nickle and diming us at every turn, the bingo was a rip off.
