We recently sailed on a 7 day Eastern Caribbean Cruise on the largest cruse ship on the seas, with 6,200 passengers and 2,500 crew members. We are in our 60's and felt that the ships activities, choice of music heard throughout many parts of the ship was oriented to a much younger grouping. There were many children on board, often exploring without parental guidance. Getting off an elevator was often a challenge with the rush of those trying to get on. We frequently had to wait, travel either up or down to get to our floor and try again.
There were many on board with coughs and sniffles. The banisters on the stairwell were often sticky and the tables in the buffet area were seen dry wiped with the last passengers table napkins. This adds to the spread of illness through the passengers.
The dining and housekeeping staff was exceptional!
This is our second cruise on Royal Caribbean and will be our last. Friends had encouraged us to try again, hence this recent cruise. We will happily return to Holland America; a different group of passengers, more intellectual based activities offered, great libraries and a more calm atmosphere. All of the above better meet our needs.
