First time on RC

Sail Date: April 01, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

First time cruising on RC. The ship was wonderful, Balcony on 9th deck was larger than we have had in the past. However, we were plagued by sewer issues on board with almost a constant odor and at one point toilets were unable to flush on our deck, although we were told it was a ship wide issue.
The dining room food was far below the quality we have experienced on previous cruises with Carnival, HAL and Princess. Windjammer Buffet above par when compared to other ships, however the dining room food was not much better than the Windjammer buffet.
Service was very good, and the itinerary was great, We do not spend much time on the ship, however, when we are dressing for dinner at 8:30 you want to feel it was worth it !
Next cruise will not be on RC.

Pros: Ship, Staff, and Itinerary

Cons: Food, Sewer issues
