We are a family of 6 with our exchange student with us. Thus we needed adjoining rooms. We the kids in one and my wife and I in the other. First issue is that RC won't combine adjoining rooms into one reservation. Second issue is that you must have an adult in each room. This would have been easier to work thru had it been communicated when we booked our rooms last summer. They got our money but failed to inform us of these details. When we went about getting final details done a few months ago this room arrangement became a big problem that they could NOT fix on the computer. They could not move me or my wife to the other room. But without an adult in that room we could not finalize that rooms reservations. We spent hours on the phone with this issue. What a complete pain in the you know where. Another big problem was the bait and switch on an excursion. A large group of our friends were on this cruise and we had booked an excursion thru RC for a catamaran to take us to a private beach and back in St. Maarten. When we get off the ship they herded us onto a bus and trucked us to a beach. We protested to the lady that we had a catamaran trip and she looked at us like we were nuts. These two issues put a damper on our experience with RC. As far as the food goes, the main dining is equal to Carnival and Disney but not better. We paid considerably more for RC and there was not one thing that stood out and being worth the extra money. Cabin size. These were the smallest state rooms we have ever stayed in. The bathrooms are tiny. Heavy set people would probably have trouble getting in and out of the shower. The sink is 1/3 the size of a standard sink. Clothing storage. There is very very little. For a 7 day cruise they need more. There are only 3 drawers. There are 3 cubby holes in the closet and about 10 clothes hangers.

Was underwhelmed and very reservations were very difficult for adjoining rooms.
