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.

Overall cleanliness was good. Just had issues with electrical outlets not working properly which never did get resolved.

Ship Tip

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.
