Review Summary

For the most part this cruise was good. Obviously Royal Caribbean can't control the rough seas and I know they are building a pier to eliminate the issue with Cococay. We had lots of fun with activities on the ship and the food and staff were amazing. The downside of the trip came to uncontrollable things and other passengers.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Embankment went pretty smooth and easy. I was a little confused because gold members didn't get priority boarding at this port. (I know gold isn't anything compared to the other tiers).

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food in the Windjammer wasn't amazing, but it was still good. We ate there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on one night. The dinning room meal on formal night was really good. The Chops Grill was awesome and defiantly worth the added price.

Chop''s Grille

5 out of 5

The food here is amazingly good and so is the staff. I was felling a seasick at the time so i didn't get to experience fully, but waitress saw this and made a to-go plate for my main meal so I can eat it later in our room. I had the 9 oz filet mignon with some mac and cheese and cheesy potato and it was awesome. Probably the best i've ever had.

Windjammer Marketplace

3 out of 5

We Ate at the Windjammer for Breakfast, Lunch, and one dinner. The food was good but not amazing. I'm sure it's hard to cater to make so much varieties of food, so I'm not complaining too much. I liked the variety of food that they had for all the meals. Some items were under or over cooked, others were good though. I wasn't a fan of the layout of the food compared to other ships, but that's minor.

My Fair Lady Dining Room

5 out of 5

We only ate here one time during the formal dining. The food was amazing and our waiter was really good. I felt that serves was a little slow, but nothing terrible. All the food tasted amazing (I had onion soup, pork Shank, & Apple pie). The apple pie was good, but it also contained yellow raisins which was fine, but different for me.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Some activities become repetitive (lots of trivia games, or "game shows"), however they always have something scheduled if you needed something to do. The only down side is some of the venues they used for activities weren't the best place to have them. Some made them hard to hear or seating was hard to participate or watch.

Casino Royale

5 out of 5

We didn't do a lot of gambling but the casino was really nice. Lots of slots at varies prices, table games, quarter pushers, and a claw machine with $100 stacks of bills. They also sold Scratch off tickets (I won $5 on one), and held a raffle drawing (I won a Diamonds International Necklace!)

Solarium

4 out of 5

This was a good place to be for a little bit. It was out of the wind and warmer than the actual pool deck and a little quieter to relax in. The small food area was nice to grab food close by. The only thing I didn't like it was a little humid, and one point it got uncomfortably humid in there.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The entertainment was pretty good. We caught one of the shows and while it wasn't what we thought it was going to be, it was still great to watch. Also the Staff flag parade was a lot more fun to watch than I though it would be. Very cool to see. The music in general way good. Your average variety or top hits.

Children's Programs

Don't have any children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff we encountered were very friendly and nice.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship is a little older and the layout is a little odd at times, no real complaints. The ship was for the most part spotless, i saw water spots on some of the windows and maintenance crew working but that's about it.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Our room was a standard cabin, nothing too fancy. There was no in-room "cooler" like other ships so we had no wait to chill our wine besides an ice bucket.

Ship Tip

On embankment day, hit up the seminars and raffle events. Nobody attends them so your odds of winning are really good. We won a prize for 3 different raffles.

Ports Of Call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

We flew in the day before but we didn't do much sight seeing.

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island) Did not visit port

The seas were too rough so they cancelled the port.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Nassau is an okay port. They are a little pushy with people trying to sell you stuff as soon as you get off the ship. Outside the port area is several blocks of very touristy shops and dinning. After a few blocks the town really goes down hill. A lot of rundown houses, graffiti, low maintained roads, etc. We walked to the Queen's Staircase and Fort Fincastle. It was an easy walk but some points there were no side walks (or shoulder to even walk on). As we wondered our way back we had to play "frogger" a few times to cross the streets, as "walk" signs don't work. The Pirate Museum was fun to visit, nothing too great, but I liked it non the less. We did get scammed out of $10 when this women came out running up to us and put cheap bracelets on us. We tried to tell her no but she insisted and said they were free but wanted a $10 for each bracelet as a donation to help handicap kids in the area. We gave her $10 for both so she would leave us alone, and saw the bracelets at the port markets for sale for $2. Not a major loss, but none-the-less a scam.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
While the staff did a great job, other passengers made this a small nightmare. We did the assigned embankment option (8:50 time) and it took us a half hour to get off the ship. There were several lines merging into one lane and guests were pushing and line jumping. There was no staff member near by to help control things. After we got off the ship it took us another 10 get our bags.
