This was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean and it was great.  We have sailed with Carnival and other lines before.  RCL has a promenade and ice skating rink which was a nice experience.  The ship was always clean in every area.  You never noticed crowds and deck chairs were easy to get.  We did miss the outdoor grill by the pool that Carnival has and also the sandwich and Mexican stations (the grill allowed you to get food in your bathing suit without getting covered up).  The shows were not the best but think this is the norm on smaller ships.  The staff was excellent, food was okay nothing spectacular and you had to pay extra for fillet mignon which you don't have to on Carnival.  The ports are why we chose this cruise, it is a great itinerary!  Overall we had a great time and never really felt any motion, smooth sailing!  We were on deck 2 and it was so quiet!

The room was nice and quiet. The toilet smelled but probably since it uses a small amount of water. Shower is round so you don't bump into walls but a little tricky to shave your legs in. Bathroom door opens right into closet so be careful coming out if cabin mate is near there.

Went to sandcastle beach and had a great mahi mahi sandwich. Beach is rocky but clear water and close to ship.


Go to the ice show and see the promenade special shows, a lot of fun!
