Disappointment of the Seas

Traveler Type: Couple | Room Type: Interior | Experience: 7+ cruises

Priceline did give me the best price, and it was easy to book, none of my review includes Priceline. I have been on 11 cruises over 6 cruise lines.   Day one on ship everything seems fine until the dining room. A week before embarkation I reserved a private table for me & fiance. Once I get to the dining room, they try to set us at a large table full of people. This is how i've always done dinner in the past and it is OK, however I did make my request and was accepted a week previous for a table for 2. I explain this to the dining room manager, she replies to me loud enough for the whole area to hear: "What, do you hate people so much that you can't sit next to them?"  How professional of her. I did eat in the dining room that night, and formal night only. The food was on par with their Monarch of the Seas, so I ate at the buffet the other nights, which wasn't so bad since it's the same food anyway.   My favorite island is Nassau, which this ship spent the least amount of time at. Didn't have time to eat breakfast and visit Atlantis. St. Thomas looked like a freight yard and the boat spends the Most time at this island. St. Maarten was enjoyable, specifically airport beach.   Reservations for shows are highly recomended. I didn't reserve for the comedy show, and never got to see it. This is my fault for not reserving; I think the room holds 40 people.    The highlight of the entertainment was Mo5aic, a music group out of Las Vegas. Improv show was also good.   The "neighborhoods" are unique for a ship, but they don't draw the crowd. If you want to visit the buffet, you must wait in line before entering as it is always over crowded.   This ship is like a floating tourist attraction rather than a relaxing cruise. Everyone I overheard had seen it on TV and wanted to sail.    I did love the ship itself, but the staff, entertainment, and food for 7 days is definitely lacking.    I suppose the price is worth it if you want bragging rights.

We loved the ship and the trip was memorable. There was one problem when we went to the sports bar on air, to watch the semi final international cricket (ICC) , we were unable to watch and listen to the game. There was a poorly planned towel demonstration at the same time. They had both large monitors on the demonstration, and when we asked to get the audio, we were refused. We were shocked that a towel demonstration took precedence to internetional event.  We missed the game and unfortunately that tainted our experience.

This ship was awesome and massive with calm seas and a great itinerary. The Dining room staff was very friendly. The shows were Top Notch and The cruise director was very involved with the passengers. Its hard to believe there were over 6000 passengers onboard - we didnt have to wait in lines to see the shows and seating was never an issue. Thumbs up RCCL!
