Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
For breakfast, we would go to the Windjammer. One morning we decided to go to the dining room, thinking it would be like it was on our last cruises. You sit at a table and they take your order, much more quiet and not as chaotic. However, they now offer sitting and ordering, and the buffet, all in the same dining room. There were other options for breakfast, but we just stuck with the Windjammer. Loved the main dining room. We ate there every evening. Food was good everywhere. Different people have different tastes, just try something else.

We didn't go to any stage shows in the theater. We usually ended up at Music Hall, always something going on there.

Children's Programs

My son was hesitant on going, but once he attended, he never wanted to leave. He would count down the time until the next session.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Michael was our fantastic room steward. He introduced himself as soon as we got to our room. Very friendly. Room was always clean and fresh, with everything we needed. Norman our head waiter, and Jose our assistant waiter were top notch. Always looked forward to dinner. So friendly, we all got along very well, so much laughing and conversation. All other personnel on the ship was very friendly. If you asked anyone a question, they were always kind and helpful

Ship Quality

Very nice ship layout. As with most ships, dining is at one end and entertainment is at the other. Everywhere you went, there was always someone cleaning and sanitizing. Everyone was always good at cleaning tables so that they were ready for the next person

Cabin / Stateroom

AWESOME!! Lots of room for two adults and one child. Plenty of storage...bed was so comfortable. This was our first room with a balcony.....what a difference, we will only get balcony rooms from now on.

Port Canaveral, Florida

Very convenient, walked off the ship, through the terminal and right on the bus. We did the non guided tour of The Kennedy Space Center through Royal Caribbean. Even if you think it would not interest you, it will. We REALLY enjoyed all of it🚀🚀

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

Truly is paradise 🌴.....we did not do the water park. We hung out in Oasis Lagoon. Before we knew it, four hours passed. We ate lunch, checked out the straw market, and got back on the ship. LOVED, can't wait to go again....

Nassau, Bahamas

Breathtaking🌴!! We went through Resort for a Day to Alantis. So much to see and do. However, my son jumped in the first pool, and never did anything else...."Mom, I'm in the Bahamas in a swimming pool, with palm trees and beautiful water all around. It doesn't get more perfect than that". Couldn't argue with that! Weather could have been better. Clearly it didn't phase him at all! You just roll with.... Definitely want to go back to the Bahamas 🌴🌊

Fast and flawless. Royal Caribbean really has it figured out. We were off the ship and in our driver's car in about 15 minutes.
