Review SummaryWe found RCI Sovereign of the Seas to be a very nice ship with helpful staff and wonderful food options. Our rooms were clean and neat and requests were handled promptly. Meals were served in healthy portions and not wasteful. We found that the second dining seating hindered in participation of many evening activities (participation and entertainment shows) Most shows were viewable by young teens, however, there was little else for them to do. In-room movies were fantastic (though we did not go on a cruise to be enticed by on-board movies.)
We took our two young teenagers on this particular cruise because it advertised so many amenities for this age. On the ship, we found minimal game tables and the equipment was broke or unavailable. There was no organized participation events that we could find. The arcade area had no more than 12 games (if that). The climbing wall was scaled more for adults.
The on-board cost of drinks and packages we found to be expensive.
