Review summaryLeaving from our home port of Bayonne was terrific. Sea days were kind of boring as I felt there wasn’t many activities other than sports/bingo. I still highly recommend this ship, we had a great time!!
Food and Dining
The staff in the windjammer were by far my favorites! Helpful and always cheerful, a great way to start your day at breakfast. The selection was nice and everything was kept replenished and fresh.
This was our least favorite dining room simply because the decor was really dark and almost seemed dinghy.
This small cafe is a great place to get away from the crowds BUT having breakfast in 270 watching the wake of the ship was a special treat. Be sure to check it out!!
The schooner bar is often our hangout/meetup spot on all the royal ships. There was an entertainer there for our cruise who did a late night adult show and he was hilarious! The bartenders and servers were always very quick and efficient as well.
American Icon Grill
We ate breakfast and dinner several times throughout our cruise. Breakfast was great with a small buffet and also a la carte options. The service was terrific!!
We had a WONDERFUL meal here!! Each course was delicious, and the service was fantastic! Highly recommend booking a meal while you’re onboard!!
while it’s fun to watch once, it gets old really quick. I ordered a drink one night before dinner and took almost 20 minutes to get, and when I finally did the machine shook half of it out of the cup. It was neat but would never do it again.
We ate breakfast here on several occasions and it was wonderful. Smaller buffet selection. Get there early though it gets crowded!!
This is a great spot for a quick or late night snack.
We got to roller-skate and drive bumper cars! There was always some kind of sporting event or tournament going on as well. Great place if you have active people in your party!

Cabin / Stateroom
Use your personal online cruise planner and book as many things as you can in advance! (North Star, Flow Rider, Shows). This way you don’t have to stand in any lines on embarkation day.
