Let me say the only good experience for us was our waitress in the Palace dining room. The staff were rude and seemed put out by us being there. Our cruise was diverted to the western Carribean due to a tropical storm. In Cozumel and Key West, it took us 2 hours to get off the ship after we reached port. It was like a refuge ship, too much chaos and crew VERY slow to call passengers to the tenders. The entertainment was mediocre at best. The buffet was very chaotic, design was poor in traffic flow. Food(when available) in buffet was only fair. Food in main dining was OK, but nowhere as good as other cruise lines. The cabins are small, which is OK, but they lack drawer storage space. Only saw cabin steward twice, never introduced himself, but made sure to knock on door on final night. (Looking for gratuity perhaps?) Other crew members were overheard saying how stupid americans were.If your looking for a BAD cruise experience, then this ship's for you. Fare was very cheap, but now I think we'll stay "Loyal to Royal".

Pros: Getting off ship after 4th day

Cons: Rude staff

Recommends Norwegian Sky? No.
