Pros and cons by cib728

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We had a very nice time. There are always pros and cons to all vacations. On this one the cons were by far the disappointment we felt in the main dining room's main courses as well as the very short amount of time you have in Key West. By the time you are able to disembark you are well beyond the posted time of arrival. It only leaves you with really 3.4-4 hours for travel and fun. Overall the pros included the room cleanliness and service as well as the variety of things to do while on board. We really enjoyed the adults only Solarium pool which was quieter and more relaxed than the outdoor party pool.

Although I normally cruise with Celebrity I went ahead and took a chance with Royal Caribbean. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. Thumbs up.

Definitely book your My Time dining reservations early and ask for the same table/wait staff each night. It makes the cruise so much more memorable!

Make sure to make it to the Helicopter pad on deck 6 during sunset to take some unforgettable pictures.
