We have been on a number of cruises & this was a great deal. We like the longer 7-10 day cruises the best, but for the price we thought we would try it. The ship was very clean when we boarded and kept that way during the entire trip. They were very timely in leaving the port of departure, and at 2 ports of call. There was a medical emergency about 2 hours after we left the second port & we had to sail back about 2 hours, the captain informed us of the emergency (woman was pregnant is what we heard & having complications). After dropping her off at the port the ship made up ground big time & we actually arrived early at our destination. Some of the food was not of the same quality I have come to expect on-board, but there was plenty of choices - so we just ordered a couple different items off each course & found there was always something we enjoyed. We love the escargot. We always eat at the dining room because we found the buffet was not of the same caliber food (neither was the coffee). The entertainment was fantastic on this cruise, more so than on other Royal Caribbean ships we have been on. The ships singers/dancers were outstanding, the comedian was great, they had a band by the name of Revolution on-board that was very good. Stateroom service was outstanding as well, very timely in sprucing up the cabin twice a day, & great towel art every night! We had some rough seas at times but the ship is so big it doesn't seem to effect ride, must have great stabilizers! This was a very enjoyable trip & we would definitely do it again. The weather, although rough at times, was normally very nice in the evening. Gorgeous full moon on our trip allowed you to see quite a ways at night & perfect temperature.
Pros: Entertainment, food, service
Cons: On board stores
