This was a nice short cruise for a weekend getaway. I was told gratuities were included in the cost of the cruise; however, I was charged $12/day for 3 days (5 people in our family). We did not utilize the dining room on the first night; therefore, I feel that I should be given the option of how much to tip (again the amount was supposedly included in the cost). The beverage cards are a huge plus. Issue with this is that it is not "unlimited" as stated when purchased. Drinks from the fountain machine is every 15 minutes. If you have to wait 15 minutes before getting a refill, this is not considered "unlimited". Staff onboard were exceptional! All friendly and attentive. Lots of entertainment (karaoke, games, dancing, bands, etc). Cococay was very nice and the fact that the beverage card worked there as well was a huge plus! Will definitely sail with Royal Caribbean again.
