Review summary

Great relaxing vacation Wonderful service in all areas if ship. Did not use special restaurants Wind jammer only 1 time. Very crowded with guests. Prefer MDR or room service.

There was a mixup with our wheelchair transport to the port. Due to no fault of RCI but they took great care of us and made alternative transportation with a prepaid voucher.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship is smaller but feels spaciousness Easy for persons in wheelchairs to navigate All areas are well cleaned. Some signs of rust on our balcony and some wear on the room furniture. But nothing to the level that took away from our trip

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
8608 is a roomy junior suite with 4 floor to ceiling windows and a large balcony. Well Wheelchair adapted. Double the storage space that we needed (packed lightly) Only 2 US outlets so we were glad to have a 4-port usb Charger In room coffee machine was used every day. I always travel with a small fan to circulate the air and for white noise for sounder sleep. Not disturbed by announcements in the cabin. Joel took great care of our room and checked to see if we were comfortable

Ship tip

If you sunburn easily(like we do) make use of the lounges like the Schooner Bar. Trivia games instead of belly flop contest

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas Did not visit port

Did not do an excursion

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

The disembarkation was very well organized and very fast, less than 10 minutes from ship to outside with our luggage
