The whole cruise was a disaster. Boarding 2 hours being crushed in Southampton. Disembarkation 3 hours in a queue at Fort Lauderdale. Ship is beautiful, but badly designed for poor weather. Nothing to do for 10 out of 12 days. Couldn't get into many shows, our designated dining table full of other people, food not hot, wine extortionate, spa a joke - 30 places for 6000 guests so couldn't buy the expensive pass. Cabin wardrobe inadequate space to reach into, no drawers, no kettle, creaked all night. Shows regularly cancelled due to weather, no alternative organised. Cruise director pathetic, his TV show awful and repeated on endless loop. Like Groundhog Day! TV channels terrible, had to pay for old films!! No sports bar so couldn't catch up with British sport results. Library is a misnomer, where was the choice of books in English for women. Everything could have been sooooo much better. Pull your socks up RCI. Incredibly disappointed. We will NEVER go on this ship again. Couldn't wait for it to be over, then took 3 hours in hideous queue so had to pay again for taxi, last straw!!

Total disappointment
