The Ship is definitely starting to show its age, and our balcony room did not feel very clean. Our room steward was grood and kept room freshened up during the14 day cruise. There was NOT near enough to do on the 8 sea days, and the entertainment was the worst I have seen in my lifetime of cruising! Evening shows were extremely low budget and were the worst we have ever seen on royal! Ice show was Great but they don't require tickets anymore and it was a Mad rush to get seats! Their are 3,100 people on the ship and studio B holds 400!!, Incredibly poor planning on royals part! Main dining room food was good and our waiters were Great! Food in the windjammer was good for breakfast but seriously lacking for lunch! Lunch menu was almost the same for the entire 14 day cruise and very limited in options! Late night food was non existent as the only place open after 9pm was the pathetic cafe! Everywhere you go you are plegged with crew trying to Up-Sell you something, and by day 2 you are sick of it! Afternoon activities especially with the 8 sea days were all but non existent, they should have at least played some new release movies in the theater like they did in the past. The Cruise was definitely geared towards the 50-80 year old crowd.  All in all the cruise was not on par with what we've seen in the past.

Relaxing!

Liked the first 6 days being at sea, very relaxing.  On a large ship like this one, plenty to do if you want too.  We took only one excursion, all the ports had do meting interesting just to walk to.  Lisbon was a particular treat, ship focus near the old part of city.  We enjoyed the food, ate at the buffet a lot...again, a larger ship has lots of variety even for gluten free and vegetarians.  Lots of international items. Many European guests which was nice.

Upon embarking, we were told staterooms wouldn't be ready until 1:30 p.m. but we could go to the buffet at 11:00 to have lunch.  It didn't open until noon. Dinner menu meat selections were prepared exactly as ordered.  Vegetables cooked perfectly, not overcooked.  Fish and lobster should be eliminated from menu as it was not fresh and tasted fishy.  Lobster watery after being defrosted and cooked.  On last night of cruise I got food poisoning from spoiled escargots.  Elevators didn't always work on Deck 9 and had to go up or down stairs.  Drinks were very expensive compared to other cruises.  There were small two pools next to each other on Deck 11 with kids cannon balling in both.  The Solarium was better but not enough seating.  The balcony off our cabin was dirty and had a lot of rust.  The plexiglass was never cleaned so difficult to see anything. The buffet was "o.k."  There was no outside hamburger/hot dog cafe by the pools where the food would be grilled.

Our favorite par of the cruise was the nightly entertainment, in particular the JAZZ BAND was FANTASTIC!!! Variety and quality of the food was average. Dennis did an awesome job in the WindJammer however closing that at 9pm nightly is NOT a good idea. No midnight snacks, no high tea, no chocolate extravaganza..... a lot lacking. 

Not a fan of the Islands we visited however we knew that going in. We went anyway because we liked the ship and that it was 9 days.

Igor in main dining room was GREAT and very professional.

Our cabin had a lot of mold and our son came down with an ear infection from it and we received a $320 Dr bill from the Dr on board.

We had a wonderful time. This was our first cruise and we would go again for sure. Although, we would probably choose different destinations... we like more green, lush, tropical locations.

Grand time with Family

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Favorite part of this cruise was getting together with family.  Our Cousin, Bonny had been staying with ill parents for 20 years!  She was able to take this cruise with us and Brother Ern and his wife Diane.  Our Granddaughter, Cassie joined us and it was a grand 9 nights visitin with family.

The best excursion was the SNUBA dive on Aruba/  George and Cassie participated in this and Cassie was thrilled to try this.  They had a wonderful time together and made a great memory.  This was a top notch operation. 

The Zip Line on Labadee was also a great time.

Great ports

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I enjoyed all the ports especially Labadee.  Zip line was amazing.  Did a tour at each port.  Much cheaper to book the city tours once you at the location.  Food on the ship was not all that great.  There was so many activities to choose from.  Enjoyed the spa.  Spent a lot of time there.  One day Two, I Got acupuncture by Alex.  He was fabulous.  Took away all my pain and I was able to enjoy the remaonder of my cruise.

Just returned from the cruise and it was really great. Enjoyed the multiple days at sea especially! Plenty to do or not do on the ship!! Food and service were excellent! Of the three ports we stopped, Bonaire was our favorite! Not quite as commercialized as the others but all offered their own uniqueness! Will definitely return to Bonaire for the snorkeling and/or diving!

I lost a diamond necklace on the next to last night and the cleaning service people found it and turned it in that says something for the honesty of the ships staff
