Waste of money, if not for being with my family..if would have been a waste of time.

Review Summary

I will Cruise Carnival again, before I ever dare waste money on Royal Caribbean. I also never got my free dinner at Johnny Rockets as promised by CruiseOnly.com.

Embarkation

3 out of 5
No real help for people whom have a problem walking gangway...waited so long, We ended up walking anyway.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was only decent in Main Dining Hall, although they often ignored my food allergies. Kept sitting us by kitchen. Buffets in Windjammer was nasty. Fake ice cream , made with some stuff in cartons. I didn't eat most of the 7 days on cruise...if I did it was in Dining Hall. Still got charged gratuity.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
No real onboard activities for people 20-40, unless you like shopping for overpriced stuff or casinos. Pools were overcrowded, and 15 deck was full of smokers. We never got the Free Rock-climbing we were promised as a perk. No real clubs for my 20's something daughter. Teens had more social time. This cruise is not for singles. It's for old people, couples and teens.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Saw a few shows.., most were horrible accept the Frozen in Time, and the last nights comedy acts.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Waiters were nice for the most part, *Room steward hardly changed our sheets, and kept rehanging dirty towels. Room was way too small for a price. Two women in 1 bed? Very Dirty couch, couldn't sit on it.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
It's a nice ship, seemed well-maintained, although they seem to do maintenance at weird times, near my boardwalk room, outside.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The dirties couch I ever saw. Needs replacing. Size small for two people. Would rather had two beds.

Ship Tip

I had a dress taken from my luggage, and staff treated me so bad, as if it was my fault I had no dress for a special All-white party we booked as a family. They never explained how my dress disappeared...yet called me at inconstant times to ask the same questions. They didn't help me resolve the matter but I was harassed for a day and a half. Which took away from the enjoyment of my trip.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
We did a private excursion. All family, on a Catamaran trip of 40 ppl, for 5 hours around island. There was unlimited, drink, food,...very nice company. Ship called "Quality Time" . It was the best part of trip/cruise.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

1 out of 5
Rained the entire time. Royal cancelled all excursions.

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)

3 out of 5
Nice Beach, but way too hot. I almost passed out walking back to ship. Water was murky, and the coral seemed to be made of cement. There was no feeling of this being Haiti, or the Caribbean; it's Just a man-made beach, with a waterpark and overpriced Zip lining. Food was brought from ship..like the Windjammer-type food. Needless to say I did not eat anything in Labadee(food is bad-ie).

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
Late..and confusing. No wheelchair as promised.
