Review summary

Right where do I start? First some positives. Great room, Gordon is a brilliant cruise director, some excellent food (wonderland, sichaun red and the chefs table in particular were excellent. Jamie's and izumi below average) staff were great virtually without exception, the music hall and 270 lounge are great venues, solarium and indoor pool are very good. Now time for some negatives. on the whole I feel the ship is very poorly laid out, especially when it comes to outside space and the placement of bars, there are hardly any places to enjoy a view whilst having a drink yet guest services has a beautiful outside view. Secondly the entertainment was so poor as to be almost shambolic, the headliner acts were just Britains got talent semi finalist level acts (generally 5 mins of entertainment crammed into an hour) the house band (the Royal swedes) are very good but to expect people to watch them for 4 hours a night virtually every night is a bit much on one occasion they played over 7 hours throughout the day. In summary I was disappointed, it seems like a opportunity missed and royal Caribbean have ended up with a OK ship with a big casino rather than a excellent ship that it could have been. One further point, RCI really have to give up on the bionic bar. it takes up too much space for a item people only ever use on day 1, sure it looks great but it was empty virtually the entire cruise.
