This was my first cruise. I had alot of fun! I can t believe I waited this long to go on a cruise. The service was very good and I really enjoyed the shows. The 70 s show was so fun! The service was excellent in the staterooms and the rooms were really pretty. There was a lot of food available , I loved the salads in the solarium and the dinners in the dining room were really good. The Windjammer food was alright but it was not as hot as I like . The  pool was really nice but was a little small for so many people on the ship. My only other issue was that I feel they really need to put something on the floors to make them not so slippery after going in the pool,

the activities were a little hokey - I would prefer to have had hottest man contest instead of bellyflop competition

Ship Tip

I wish I had brought a card holder to put around my neck to keep my royal Caribbean card in- you use the card for a key and to buy drinks on board.
