Sovereign of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: August 28, 2006
Ship: Sovereign of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago
Review SummaryOk, we decided to go cheap and get the lowest accomodations ---shame on us! Never again. The room was cramped (not quite like the picture, but are they ever?) and the service was lacking. No safe or refrigerator in the room and the sink leaked.
The service besides the main dining room was poor. We actually sat in a bar for 15 min and NO ONE came by to get our drink order. And overall the ship just looked worn down. I know its an older ship but there were stains on the carpets, chipping paint, etc. The guest relations desk was poorly informed and couldn't seem to answer some basic questions. Nothing like our previous cruise on RCL.
HOWEVER, on a good note. The food was great in the main dining room and was pretty good in the Windjammer (buffet style). Definitely lived up to our expectations there. Great food variety in Windjammer. The crew were great in making it an enjoyable vacation around Hurricane Ernesto. They managed to skirt around him and we avoided most of the weather, just a small dose of him for about an hour or so on the last day. Overall, we'll never go cheap again.
