When we booked this cruise for a family celebrations that included 15 people, we read the reviews. Plumbing problems were noted but we figured that Royal Caribbean would have had to have addressed these issues so we didnt' pay too much attention. We were WRONG! After the second night my parents room on the 8th deck developed a large wet spot in the middle of their stateroom. A towel was put over it to reveal dark brown stains. The smell permeated the room throughout the trip, although blowers were brought in each day to dry up the spot - feels and smells like plumbing problems. My cousins on the 9th deck had a similar odor in their room. Every night there were restrooms by the main dining room and outside the theater which had at least one stall unavailable to use - this is very disconcerting. As a group of 15, we had a good trip. I would recommend the Voyage of the Seas or one of the larger ships. We didn't have any issues on the Voyage of the Seas - the food was much better on the larger ship. Then entertainment on this ship was very good and enjoyed by all.
