Trip Report Royal Caribbean Changes!!!!

Jump to last reply

Went on Royal Caribbean Many time and loved it so much that I get a group every year together to go with us! Wow this year was a bummer. I understand that cruising is interpreted different for many people. To me its the once a year vacation that we go on to have fun, sun, dancing, and relaxing and of course the food! This year Royal Caribbean made so many changes that the cruise felt awkard or different to me. It wasn't really fun, music was scarce, the 2-for-1 drinks only from 330-430 in 2 bars both on each side of casino. No more announcement from cruise director so you have to carry Compass or watch. Although they have 3-4 that I notice electronic compasses around ship. (waste of money for cruise line). Also, food was ok not great seems like a lot of same thing. In the main dining room on formal nights don't entertain anymore only have piano and violinist playing softly. So many people didn't dress up for formal nights. staff actually said they were upset that they don't sing and dance anymore! When we arrived on cruise on prior sailing. There was immediately someone playing steal drums and cocktail servers going around selling drinks not this time. I was disappointed on the changes. it definitely wasn't for the better but It was worse.

The best thing on there was the H2O zone and Casino and of course The adventure Ocean Rocked! I can't say enough about adventure ocean! They were amazing with my Girls I have a 3 and 4 year old. They have a program that they can have lunch and dinner with them and its opened until 10. for free. My kids never wanted to leave. I even took them to the main dining and at 640 (early dining 6) they would meet outside of one of the 3 dining rooms and take your kids up. to play. so we can enjoy rest of dinner and show.

I felt like the activites weren't a good selection.

We went on Independence of the seas and the ship itself was ok but seems like the cruise line made some bad changes!
