Review SummaryWe were first time cruisers and a little disappointed with the vacation that we looked forward to for 6 months. We sailed out of San Juan with Royal Carribean in mid Feb. Several incidents happened that put a damper on the trip. Some of the ports were lovely.. some weren't worth getting off the ship for. Some places felt unsafe. Anyways.. if you want an relaxing laid back vacation .. cruising isn't the way to go. IT's rush rush rush.. the entire time that you're on the trip. The most fun we had was on the Pelican Sports Boat at Aruba.. snorkeling with them.. and dancing on the catamarran...Do not miss the day trip to St Johns... Trunk bay is the most beautiful beach you can visit on the entire trip... It was our last day... and I absolutely loved st johns.
Food and Dining
Our waiter managed to hit one of our table mates in the head with his elbow.. a loud " Thud" was heard around the table. She held her head for the rest of the evening.
There are so many people waiting on the tables that for the first time cruiser it's a little overwhelming. It seems that we tip the dining room manager, the waitier, . the person who fills the water glasses,.. the bar people.,. ( who never showed
up) All these are left as envelopes at the end of your trip or you can pay the standard tip. The most disturbing thing was that another diner at our table warned the wait staff of a severe seafood allergy... more than one time. She was served a steak with shrimp stuck underneath it. GLad she found them.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
power stick thing.
Pros: Aruba and the trip to St John Trunk bay
Cons: the staff was rude. customer service hard to deal with. Pool rules weren't followed. Felt rushed and like someone always had their hand out for money
