It was our first cruise and had awesome time. We had one of the most relaxing vacation ever. Never felt we were sailing with so many things to catch up. Great shows, movies on top deck, ice skating, casino, rock climbing and many more. Food was great with very friendly staff. Always smiling and ready to offer you services. Formal dining experience was good too. Overall it was well spent vacation and worth each peny. I would love to cruise again in the future and would strongly recommend to anyone who are looking forward for a wonderful vacation kudos to all hard working staff of Royal Caribbean who made our vacation memorable.
This being our first cruise, I was not really prepared for the numbers of people, especially around the swimming pools and in the Windjammer dining room at meal times. The Promenade area became congested, as one would expect, during peak hours. The ship is beautiful. The fitness area and programs are exceptional. The excellent navigation of the ship is mind-boggling. The tendering process at Grand Cayman was very efficient as we left the ship. We had a great time!
This is a beautiful ship full of features that will meet the expectations of most anyone. Royal Caribbean's staff is polite and friendly as usual and the service is top notch. I only have two negatives: there are too many activities to choose from and the cruise in review video has old ship footage. The food, entertainment, and on-board activities are exceptional. I have booked another cruise for November on the other itinerary (Honduras,Belize, and Cozumel) that the ship offers.
I have cruised 5 times now, and have made all the ports I am interested in, and some of them twice, so this cruise was a little disappointing, since nothing ever changes on these ships. The games, activities, and much of the entertainment is always the very same thing. We have participated in most of the excursions we want to try, and so now we just go to the beaches at each port. I wish the cruise lines would add some variety to their activities on board. It gets kind of boring, even though still relaxing. Their drink packages are not worth it, especially if you want iced tea - it's not available at any of the food areas except the Windjammer which is not easy to get to, and even they do not keep tea made. I was disappointed in the drink package! This ship was just remodeled, but I could not see any big differences in it and any other Royal Caribbean ship I have been on. All in all - if you've never cruised, it would be fun, but after several cruises, I am ready for a different type of vacation.
We was very pleased with the trip and the crew members. We will tell our friends about the nice experience we had and we will recommend the cruise. Had a great time on bord. The staff was outstanding frendly and helpfull.
The shows were my favorite part of the trip. The excursions were very good.
The staff in both the main dinning and windjammer were excellent, some of them even went out of their way to accommodate us. We are vegetarians and staff in main dinning hall made sure we had something very night especially for us.
The stateroom we stayed in was always kept perfectly clean.
This was our first Royal Caribbean cruise. It was great for the price and convenience of the port being driving distance for us. We have only been on Disney Cruise Line before and definitely tried to go into it with an open mind knowing it would be different. After trying RCL I would sail with them again but my family even a 16year old boy said he would prefer Disney.
