when we took the kids this time there was my 5 kids and 1 boyfriend. We cruise every year. This year with my work slow we did 2 so far and one more in October. We felt the food in the main hall was not very good. They had lobster but it was just small chunks mixed with other stuff. The prime rib was ok but you can get the same cut in the garden cafe. We did like the pay chinese and the french was a great meal. We have been on NCL and Carnival. We are going to try royal this time.
