This cruise is fun for families. RCL is a relaxed cruise line with a casual dress code - maybe due to the destinations. We traveled with our 2 teenagers ages 14 and 18. We did find there is not much for 18 year olds in the evening. They are no longer allowed in the teen lounge but have permission to go to the 18 and up dance club. However there are older adults there as well - over 40 yr olds - which does not appeal to an 18 year old. I think the cruise line needs to put more energy into the 18-21 year olds.
Having been on on other cruise lines I was not impressed with the food in the upper deck buffet, however the main dining room was very good. Our servers were excellent - we looked forward to seeing them each evening. There was only one up charge restaurant on our ship - $30 extra pp which I thought was high. This ship needs more choices.
But overall, we had a good time. Nice fitness center. Rock climbing wall was great fun especially for my teen son. Small mini golf course. Ice skating rink. Destinations were fun.

Adult pool packed by 10:00 am - start day early if you want to workout, get breakfast and go to pool. We enjoyed going to the main dining room for breakfast on days we had time. Go to the rock climbing wall and skating rink at the beginning of open climb or skate time - no lines.
