This cruise was perfect for my mother. It's difficult for her to get around so the one port with lots of shops and beautiful beaches was perfect for her. The age group was OLDER. Therefore the entertainment, food and pace was geared for the retired and up.


Royal Caribbean tends to nickle and dime you as well.

The cabin was very nice and kept so clean that all you could smell most of the time was bleach.

Ship Tip

This is the cruise for you if you are not interested in the nightlife and meeting people younger than 65.

Don't bother with the shuttle bus. Take a cab from the airport. The cost is a flat $25.00. The shuttles were between $20 - 30 per person.
