A fabulous cruise

Sail Date: June 01, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

This cruise ship is the smallest in Royal Caribean but it has enough room for everyone. The food was spectacular. They had food from all over the world like scones, rice, and curry chicken. But the midnight buffet was horrible. They only had a few healthy foods but mostly desserts. From huge cakes to small chocolates...the dessert didn't even taste good. But I think a small quier ship is great to be on. At the beggining they had a life boat drill. You put on a life jacket as they were ringing a bell. YOu gathered at your muster station. The kids got colored braclets to show their muster station. Knowing how to do this made me feel safe on this journey. The staff is great! The waiters and waitresses are even better. They even have a dancing night and a singing night! It is all superb. Consider this cruise you won't regret it.

Pros: the best parts were the food and performances

Cons: i went for 7 nights i needed another day to relax

Ship Quality
Very clean and tidy. Gorgeously set up
Food and Dining
The food is too good to be true. And the ship has some healthy foods that taste good.
Cabin / Stateroom
Pretty crowded in the interior. Get an oceanview room.
Service and Staff
Friendlyness Gurenteed
The last 2 nights were not as good. One night was very adult humor. My kids hated it. The last night "VIVA" put me to sleep.
