Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Everyone we know who cruises a lot said RC is by far the best. I would disagree, but I think the cost of their drink package is far to expensive, the food is fair at best nothing exceptional and nothing to write home about

Windjammer Marketplace

All of the shows have been great the comedian was very funny while not being crude as so many of today's so called comedians are. Best part of the cruise! They did cancel a couple of shows due to safety concerns due to the rough seas.

Broadway Theater

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
I have never seen so many people (crew) that look like they just didn't want to be somewhere. Very few smiled even when smiled at. My wife even wondered if some of them were indentured. And lastly, we have had very few crew members that we could understand what they were saying had to ask them to repeat themselves. I think need better communication

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
The overall cleanliness of the ship was fine with the exception of the sheets on the bed. One night, day 3 I believe, my wife found some small stains on the sheets so shem pulled them all back only to find a very large stain on the mattress pad which appeared to be urine. There is a lack of handicapped facilities, most men's restrooms had 1 sometimes 2 stalls but my wife found none of the women's restrooms had handicapped facilities.
