My husband and I love Royal Caribbean, but we will never sail on this ship again. Despite the million plus overhaul they completed on the ship the rooms were not updated very well. The over-sized balcony stateroom (9362) smelled terrible like moth balls. The hallway near the room smelled like mold. It was very disgusting and disappointing. I was expecting a nice clean experience with the renovation, but that did not happen. Royal Caribbean needs to fix this issue asap! The specialty restaurants were great! Hooked was amazing as was Izumi! The steakhouse left much to be desired for as it did when we sailed on Allure 6 months ago. If you are used to The Capital Grille, or a Maestros level steakhouse you will not receive the same quality(read flavor/deliciousness) here. Skip the steak house and choose any of the other restaurants for sure! The cruise overall was very relaxing. In the future we will definitely choose Oasis Class or better. This boat does not compare to Allure by a long shot!

Smelly rooms
