Fabulous ship! Dance/aerobics???

Sail Date: April 19, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Well-designed mega-ship.  Wonderful crew, great food.  Dining experience in Adagio excellent.  Good selection of restaurants.  Central Park, with the trees and foliage is delightful.  Enjoyed the main shows but guest performers were not top-line.  Variety of activities offered to satisfy all ages.  I often choose Royal Caribbean because it offers daily dance/aerobic session.  Was extremely disappointed on this cruise when, after 2 half-hour sessions, they were terminated. Apparently the Cruise Director, (a certified Zumba instructor) injured his knee.  As he had told the almost 100 participants that we should expect daily 45 minute sessions, it would have been reasonable for him to assign one of the other most capable staff to conduct some form of dance/aerobics for the remainder of the cruise.  Not necessarily Zumba.  There must be provisions for temp. replacements for every job function on board.  Can loyal RCCL cruisers expect to enjoy dance/aerobics sessions on this ship in the future??  




Ship Quality
Well-designed, bright, clean
Food and Dining
Except for poorly designed, cramped coffee/tea area in Windjammer buffet
Service and Staff
Consistently good
Ice shows were fantastic! All resident musicians were superb. Loved Blue Planet.
Onboard Activities
Good variety of activities offered. However RCCL should always offer dance/aerobics.
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom I was well-satisfied with my cabin layout and cleanliness. My stateroom attendant, David, was professional, friendly and helpful.


Enjoy the ambience of Central Park at any time of the day or evening.
