The ship is beautiful. The special features of the ship are amazing. We loved the new activities offered on this ship; indoor skydiving/ bumper cars/ The specialty shows and view from the overlook. The ship was very clean and creative with many spaces to explore.

 My family could not tell some of the difficulties we experienced were due to the newness of the ship. The embarkation was really bad. We are diamond members and had to wait 1 hour 15 mins. to get checked in due to their understaffing. All shows we attended started late. The food was okay but not exceptional. I have been on 24 Royal Caribbean cruises and it was definitely the least tasty of all the cruises we have attended. I an hoping that these things will get worked out.

Cabin / Stateroom
The rooms have more room and better storage
Embarkation and Disembarkation
No Diamond check-in. We were put in chairs to sit in because they did not have enough people to check-in people. People went around to people in chairs to check in people. People kept moving out of the area so they could get attended to . After an hour in the chairs. We exited the port and went past security to checkin in with people outside in the cold and re entered security. The whole process was one hour and fifteen minutes.

Check in early or late so that you will miss the rush. Signup for all your shows prior to cruising.
