Review Summary

Too many people. Not great food. Too many reservations required onboard: restaurant and entertainment. We were unable to book some entertainment because the dates we wanted were already taken. Private tour of Jamaica with Patrice was the highlight of our trip. Don't miss lunch at Scochies in Jamaica and Dunn's River with Patrice's private tour.

Perhaps the larger ships have a more difficult time creating quality meals, but I found the food to be under par for the Royal Caribbean ships. The service was excellent, the cabin service above expectations, but the meals were so-so. I enjoy the next size down ships for many reasons. We are seniors who never made use of the basketball courts, flow machine, zip line or miniature golf offering. We enjoyed Jamaica with the Patrice tours and Dunn's River Falls most of all. The Labadee barbecue was definitely not up to par. We went back to the ship for lunch. Too many venues and too many reservations were necessary onboard. Next time, smaller ship for us!
