Our Cruise was not good. There was nothing special and wouldn't cruise with Royal Carribean again.

The food was very poor quality and the staff, with the exception of our stateroom attendant and waiter, all had an attitude.

All the food was very poor quality and there nothing exciting about the presentation other than the fact that it all seemed like cafeteria food. The majority of the fruit on board wasnt even ripe. The one night I was really looking forward to was the lobster night. The piece of lobster I was given was 2 inches long and I was told I couldnt get another piece which I hated!

Our room was ok and our attendant always kept it clean. He was very nice and tried his best to make sure we were comfortable. Go SETO!!

The onboard activities were nothing special and what they did have, wasnt widely talked about in advance. Most of the time when you went to the activity, (e.g. rock climbing wall, teen lounge a.k.a. living room, ice skating) no one was there that knew anything about times or schedules of when activity was available.

We Didn't book anything with the ship, but had no problem on shore setting up activities and from what I heard we spent less. Jet skies, snorkeling, and para sailing were the highlights.

Unfortunately we rated the whole cruise at about a six on a scale of 1-10. Problem is, our expectations for what a Royal Carribean cruise would be like were much higher.
