Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food in main dining was good but salads were small portions. Specialty dining was awesome.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Use the fitness center but several guess staying in machine way to long and many quest were waiting for their turn. They need a staff member in fitnesss room to check in and make sure all guest are getting their Fat time.

We gamble every nite and they only had 1 table for $6 blackjack open while dealers stood around at $10-$25 tables without any quest at them. Several guest had to wait to get a seat at $6 table. If they see this they should open another table . Plus we always had to request a drink as there was servers to be found.

Ship tip

I think Royal Caribbean should have a bartenders contest with all bars from the ship. Should have guest be judges and have them make drinks upon request, taste and time and presentation and final will be held on second to last day of cruise. Prize is awarded to winner. This contest will help employees feel appreciated more and their value.
