Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Cruised with friends and family.  Enjoyed a boardwalk balcony filled with continuous action,,,, (aquatic show, music, rock climbing, carousel and a FABULOUS VIEW of the sea).  The service we received was outstanding.  The cabin steward kept out cabin clean and replenished with what we needed,  the service in the dining room was absolutely WONDERFUL.   Juana de Guzman (waiter) and Jose Omar de la Sala (assistant) met and exceeded our every need.  Such outstanding service needs to be recognized so they earned my WOW  card.  They are an asset to RCCL, our congratulations to them.  As for the portsNervous of call,  Nassau, Bahamas needs a massive makeover.  There is nothing to do in the short time there and it has been the same for the past 20 years.  Prefer a day a COCO CAY at the beautiful beach. Love St Thomas is alway great with some shopping, a tour up the mountains with the breath taking views and of course the finale at Magens Bay to enjoy one of the worlds best beach. Love St Maarten is the best, after many visits it still is exciting to shop for linens, fragrances, liquor (GUAVABERRY) and end the day at the beautiful beach  right in town with some native food, drinks, music and the BEACH.  Great, spectacular visit, enjoyed to the fullest.  Plan to do it again.

Destinations and Excursions Visited these ports many times so we travel with the natives
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Nassau, Bahamas
We do not care to visit Nassau as it offers nothing new to the visitor, needs a complete make over. It has been the same for the past 20 years
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
shopping and beautiful Magens Bay
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
shopping for Guavaberry, linens, liquor and enjoy the rest of the day at the beach having local food and fabulous frozen drinks


Went to different venues for food every day as the ship offers different locations and they are all good (dining room, windjammer cafe, park ave cafe, wipe out and the diner located on the boardwalk)
