I was on the Royal this past July. While a nice looking ship. I felt extremely claustrophobic. THe ship has almost no open areas at all except for the pool. I couldnt sleep at night either becuase of the Horrible vibration! It felt like I was sleeping on one of those old motel beds you always see in the movies, you know the ones, that run on a quarter to shake? I was on the 8th floor (passenger floor) too so it wasnt like I was near the engines. I was sat in the dining room aft, and the vibration was so bad it shook the fork off my plate. The food was so so and I felt pressured by the waiter to order wine. The staff was very nice and helpful but I would not sail the Royal again.
