Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The room steward and diining room service people were very good.  The food was disppointing and lacked imagination.  This was felt by our teenage grandchildren as well.  The ship had just been refurbished but it still felt dated to us.  Balconey rooms are tight especially the bathrooms. The nightly entertainment was just okay.  The teen program also was just mediocre and lots of the teenagers were just walking around the ship and making their own entertainment at night.  The gym equipment was also dated.  Overall the cruise did not leave us with a feeling of excitment about RCCL.  We do cruise regularly and did not feel this cruise measured up.

Make sure that the kids know that drinks are already tipped and taxed so that they do not put a tip on top of what is charged. Our young teenagers hung out at the same bar regularly but was never told that he was double tipping on sodas.
