Poor Service during Spring break week

Sail Date: March 09, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Service at the bars and main dining restaurant were extremely slow possibly due to the large number of Spring breakers. We were not impressed with the food compared to other cruise lines. I'm not sure how Royal Caribbean received the #1 cruise rating.  Our vote is for Carnival!

Love Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was fine. Smaller than other balcony staterooms on other cruise ships. Extended balcony. Say view is obstructed but it's really's actually more private with only one person on the left side of you.
Tampa, Florida
We went to St. Pete Beach for 2 days after the cruise which is a great town and has beautiful beaches.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Went to 7 mile beach which is beautiful. I would avoid the public beach and pay the $5 pp charge for the Rose Hall Resort in hindsight. It was very crowded but could be due to the 6 cruise ships in port.
Cozumel, Mexico
We did the Playa Mia Deluxe and with the Orbitz special was just about 1/2 price.
