Review Summary

This cruise is perfect for people looking to relax at the pool and be entertained with little personal effort. There were few children on my trip and tons of REALLY fun people ready to have a good time. For how much my boyfriend and I paid the food was good, although not quite as good as the luxury cruise lines. There was lots of variety though. Unfortunately due to swine flu we were not able to go to Cozumel, and our boat was also not able to go to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, so instead we went to Montego, Jamaica. The locals were annoying at this port, and it was 1 and 1/2 hour bus ride to Dunn River Falls. That was just bad luck though! Our waiter was great, but unfortunately he served us last out of all his tables so dinner usually lasted till 10:30. One employee at the casino cashier counter was very rude as well, but she had a testy customer before me. Nothing could beat our cruise director though. He was hilarious, and he and his staff hosted really entertaining games during the day at the pool and game shows at night. The pool waiters were good as well, but stretched a little thin. Our room was wonderful and well cleaned, and some other cruisers and I had great luck at the casino! Overall Royal Caribbean was a great deal.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Stingray City - always worth a visit. Dolphin Discovery Cove - our excursion took us there, but only to look. Don't pay unless you can get in with the dolphins!

Montego Bay, Jamaica

The shops were sub-par, the locals harassed us, you had to pay to get into the public beach, and the Margaritaville and terrible service and very poor food.

Pros: The new pool deck, the other fun cruisers, and the cruise director

Cons: Montego Bay, Jamaica and some less helpful employees
