Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Royal has the best food of the 5 cruise lines I've sailed.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Most activities we attended were good, EXCEPT the Casino was very poorly ventilated and contained entirely to many slots and not enough card tables, resulting in no place to walk or stand.

Our waiters Maria & Alfredo were wonderful. The entire staff was great.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Everything was clean, however we did not like the casino layout or design.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Smaller than usual, but that's okay, just a place to sleep.

Ship tip

Always try the "Drink of the Day". They were very fruity and affordable.

FASTEST embarkation and debarkation we have experienced in 25 years of cruising.

Cozumel, Mexico

Nice clean port, tons of shopping. Had a fantastic time at the Chocolate, Tacos & Tequila excursion. A very good tequila tasting session with lots of quality tequila after.
