I can't help you with the room but I'll tell you this about service, food and fun. I love RC and wouldn't sail anything else. As for old, I don't know how old you are but I went on RC a couple times when I was in my 20's and now I'm mid 30's. it was a blast! Poolside games and music all the time. I found with Carnival, the food, service and fun wasn't up to RC standards. There were lapses in time when nothing was going on by the pool on Carnival and on RC, always something. I loved it. It may of changed over the years but back 10 years ago, it was awesome. I'm going on another RC in Feb 2003, Grandeur of the Seas and hoping things have stayed the same over the years. I hear it has so I'm hopeful! You'll never go back to Carnival!
