Itinerary: Eastern Caribbean

Too crowded, to many children. Nickel and dimed for everything, popcorn, ice cream cones, snacks. We tried to sign up for shows before the sailing but, everything was full. Waited in line after line to get into any show - never saw a one. No current movies onboard, just cartoons for children. No consistency on restaurants - sometimes the serving was free, other times a fee was charged at the same restaurant, ie - Johnny Rockets. 2 Formal nights on a 7 day cruise was to much. The food in the buffet was the same thing day after day. The best thing I can say about the cruise was the service was outstanding.

It left a lot to be desired. If you want to pay more to eat even lunch you could get a change in your menu, otherwise it was the same old thing. No menu was provided for room service. We went to the Brazilian Grill specialty restaurant, it was the only one with any openings. Nothing to write home about.

The balcony was nice. The room was a little cramped but nice.

There were very few activities for adults. We never got to see a show, they were all full. We waited in line after line to try and get in with no luck. The movies offered were cartoons for children. 7 day cruise with 3 days at sea, not good.

St. Maarten segways were fun.

This was the 2nd time we have cruised with Royal Caribbean out of 10 cruises. We will not be back. Constant nickle & dime for small items.
