We have cruised with Royal Caribbean several times & this cruise was just not up to their usual quality.  The ship had just been renovated but there were a lot of kinks to be worked out.  Initially our cruise was scheduled for April 30, 2016 but was cancelled about a week prior due to renovations not being completed.  We had issues with some electrical in our cabin and with the spa.  I know it could have been worse but when you spend good money on a vacation you expect to get your money's worth.  Overall we had a good vacation but were disappointed that there were issues since the ship had just been refurbished.

Cabin / Stateroom
Overall cleanliness was good. Just had issues with electrical outlets not working properly which never did get resolved.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We were delayed over an hour embarking because passengers from the previous cruise were not off the ship yet I think because the previous cruise had a lot of issues.
Ship Quality
Had issues with electrical outlets in our cabin.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Guest services was not very helpful regarding an issue we had with spa.
Food and Dining


It is their smallest ship but we had no issues with it being too rocky. Does not have as many of the ammenities as a larger ship.
