Review summary

Skipping Saigon at last minute was a disappointment. Food quality not good-Windjammer constantly being reminded to eat and leave by loud announcements. Food in Dining room not much better. Food in Coastal Kitchen for suites was better. Pizza wasn't even good. Felt food was cheapest they could get their hands on and serve. Did not eat in speciality rest. as we feel we can eat anywhere on shore for prices charged so why do that on ship-maybe we have a strange attitude. No activity to discuss ports or history of ports on sea days. Lack of sea day activity except at the pool. Ship charged for about every activity-drink packages very expensive and internet at $20/day is very high. Feel like once on board you are being fleeced at every opportunity by RC. RC has really slipped-been on about 6 RC cruises and earlier ones good-will not do RC again.

Ship tip

Food not good. Golden Correl is better. Too many passengers. Activities for younger passengers. Pixel show good. Skipped Saigon port and added a beach port-probably because RC wouldn't pay the port fees, they claim Saigon had no room.
