Review Summary

This ship is massive! There is So much to see and do! With central park, where most of the specialty restaurants are, you do not feel like you are on a ship! The Boardwalk has a carousel and the Aqua-theater, along with a kids play area & Johnny Rockets. We watched the surfers on the Flow-rider & the people who zip-lined. Of course the Royal Promenade, where shops & more restaurants are located is a very popular area, and at times was a bit too crowded!

If you slept in for breakfast, the WindJammer buffet would have a waiting line, but we never had to stand in it, since we are early risers.

Our tour in San Juan ended up being cancelled, which we were told was a first, but they offered us a tour that was similar at a cheaper cost or our money back. We chose the alternate tour & felt it was worth doing. Would have liked to have more time In San Juan!

The headliner shows were very good, and we enjoyed the music all through out the ship. The cruise director & his staff were very patient with others asking questions.

Since we were on the 3rd level, I personally could not look out the window much, since the water was almost at our level, it made me a bit sea-sick. We have stayed in balcony rooms prior to this trip, as well as interior rooms, so feel like we will either save the money next time for interior, or spend more for a balcony. The room itself had plenty of space & storage for the week

Ship Tip

We ended up eating breakfast in the main dining room for the last 2 days, which saved us having to search for a table. We did use the buffet, which did not have as large a choice as the Wind-Jammer, but you could order off a menu if you preferred.
