We had a fabulous time on our first cruise.  We will definitely return to Royal Caribbean.  I would be fascinated to learn about your hiring process.  There is a saying that "the only thing more difficult than consistently providing excellent customer service is to motivate others to consistently provide excellent customer service."  What an amazing job!  We have never experienced such a consistent high level of service with a smile.

Shirley in housekeeping gets a definite 10. We thoroughly enjoyed Rajinder and staff in the dining room. Very pleasant and helpful. Always a smile!

Loved the balcony facing the water. Definitely worth the price difference.

Ship Tip

The public balconies aft were a late find. Very quiet place to read while still getting the warmth of the sun and no wind! Will definitely be my go-to place for quiet time on the next trip.
