Wonderful, but a little scary due to the coronavirus...didn’t do a lot because of that! Since Royal Caribbean would not let us cancel.

Review summary

Honestly before we went on the cruise we were going to cancel and we had travel insurance and royal Caribbean would not let us cancel now the policy changed while we were on the ship because of all of the coronavirus situations with the princess cruises and the carnival cruises and the 82 people that were on the grandeur of the sea from the Royal Caribbean that had just the flu. I believe if we would’ve been able to cancel and reschedule during the summer or nay maybe later in the year it would’ve been a much more enjoyable cruise we were kind of scared and worried about the coronavirus so we didn’t do a lot of the activities or the shows my children weren’t able to do the Ifly because of the weather which is a little upsetting so I’m a little aggravated with what Royal Caribbean did to us and wouldn’t let us cancel even though we had travel insurance.

Did not get to enjoy it actually walk through one time when the weather was bad and of course the weather up there was perfect but my children are 12 and 15 and they weren’t able to go in which is a little aggravating because it looks like it was the best place on the ship!

Ship tip

Make sure you plan your dinners and activities So you can do everything available. We didn’t do this so we missed out on A LOT!!!!
