I have had several cruise experiences and this is the one that I decided to write about. I booked this cruise on the spur of the moment and thats where the mistakes started. I did NOT investigate the size of the rooms or I would have never have gone on this ship. I did not check out the other reviews or I would probably not have gone on this ship.

It started when I was trying to find out the dinner menu and ran into about 20 dead ends.. Royal would not help me or answer any questions about the fare that was served until I requested a refund. The gave me a sample menu stating that they changed every cruise(what A LIE) The menu that we got at our dinner was so worn and beat up that it had to be around for months. Overall the food was at best Average. For a cruise I would consider it POOR. The breakfast and lunch is what I would expect at any Vegas all-u-can-eat buffet for around 6 bucks. The late noght buffet consisted of nothing more than finger sandwiches and a salad. POOR QUALITY at best.

On to the Ship. What a experience. The whole ship stunk like a giant sewer. We were on the 5th floor and it smelled BAD. The room was appx 120 sq ft and that includes the bathroom(mold and mildew) and the closet. Try getting ready for dinner with 4 people(2adults,2kids). The only thing that I can say positive about this complete cruise is that the Kids had a great time. There was pleanty of things for them to do and they loved it. The pizza that was available was no better than a frozen pizza you get for a buck at the market and the "ice-cream" machine..... well we found it the last night under a stairwell and the staff was cleaning it. Overall I would rate this cruise 1 star at best as I would rather not have gone at all.
