Responding to an IGLU on solo cruise experience. Oct 2016 did the 24 day Pacific repositioning. Have been on many other lines with their one meet and greet, or a couple of lunches or the morning tea!! But had the best ever recently on Explorer of the Seas.Every sea day solo travellers could lunch at 4-5large tables by the windows of the main dining room. I don't know if this is usual on Royal or thanks to the initiative of a staffer DaveMac facing an unusually long voyage. As an older solo traveller on a larger ship, I found it very pleasant

At check in they have 4 buffets empty and 3000 people hungry! After 4 requests to have our bed split they finally showed up and proceeded to take 1 bloodstain mattress pad from one bed and fold it and put it on the other bed we said NO! they went and got a clean one the bed I was on stunk so bad I didnt sleep it was the pillow and mattress pad they fixed the problem. The food sucked!! Dennys grade in the buffet! They do not know what a vegans eat, they lock up the soy milk so you have to track someone down to get the key so you can have coffee. 2 kinds of red wine both sucked. Bar service was horrible these people do not care. The 5th floor cigarette smoke everywhere and supposed to be non smoking expose to a lot of second hand smoke.The helps seemed very confused and un directed. The boat was beautiful and very clean.

I have just been on this ship cruising from Dubai to Singapore and have to say what a disappointment it was. The entertainment was poor, the films were as old as the hills, the food was repetitive and lacked imagination. Everything had to be paid for, talk about a rip off, it was not worth the money at all. The trips were poor, the places we visited could have been better, in fact I wouldn't go on Royal Caribbean again if you paid me. Thomson are far better and a lot cheaper, it's a shame they don't visit far flung places. I wasn't the only one to say this either. We had to queue for 3 hours to get on the ship in Dubai, then we had to queue to be interviewed face to face by Indian immigration, so that we could spend a day and a half in India. What a waste of money. The cabins and balconies are a lot smaller than most ships. Never again.
