The main critisism of PoA is the crew - due to employment laws of the US - the ship is registered in the USA then they have to emply US staff. They do not seem to be able to provide the same level of service as the 'usual' staff on cruises who come from Phillippines, Indonesia, India etc....I don't think things will change in the next few weeks, Remember those who complain are probably accostomed to the normal high standards of service on cruises, and this is just a bit different.

I am writing this before I go on my familiarisation trip taking in the sites of Seattle, Washington State and Las Vegas, however when you read this I will actually be there!

By Amy Ginder

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of cruising on the Symphony of the Seas for two days. It is safe to say that she did not disappoint! What a incredible, incredible ship! There really is no other cruise line like Royal Caribbean. They have the edge over every other line, what other cruise line would deliver aqua divers diving hundreds of metres through the air?The Aqua Theater on Symphony was breath taking, I can not believe that is humanly possible to do some of the stunts they perform, ...
