Review summary

Great family cruise. Kids had a wonderful time. Lots of spring break college students which was only downfall, as it was hard to find a spot on sea days.

Even with new temperature testing it was a very quick and easy process

Food and Dining

We only did the MDR on this trip since we had our kids. The food was good, service was excellent. The Windjammer was decent. Only complaint was it's the same foods over and over for breakfast and dinner.

Ship Quality

Royal has always been great and on par with cleaning. With this virus going around, they've stepped it u even more. Constant cleaning, urging sanitizer. I was not worried about getting sick while on this ship. Kudos Royal!

Cabin / Stateroom

This was our first balcony and we loved it. It was a bigger balcony because of location. Very clean and comfortable.

Ship tip

Smaller ships you feel a lot more movement. Higher deck and winds can make you move a lot.
