Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We have cruised on several other cruise lines, which I felt were better because they had paid more attention to detail. We really enjoyed the cruise, however we will probably go back to those cruise lines because the cost was about the same and I think the quality of the service was somewhat better. Also I think I could have got a better rate if I had booked directly with Royal Carribbean, as the couple at our table said they paid $1000.00 less then we did because they booked directly with the cruise line.

Pros: visiting the islands ports

Cons: the condition of the ship

Ship Quality
The pool area had dirty dishes and straws and napkins on the floor. Bathrooms at times smelled (men)
Food and Dining
Food was very good, variety was better for formal dining on other ships that we have been on before.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was kept in excellent order, the staff was very helpful and very friendly.
Entertainment was the best of any cruise line we have been on.
Service and Staff
On occasion staff walked in front of us with dirty dishes, when cleaning off the table next to our the waiter placed that tables dirty dishes on our table ,then picked up my husbands dishes.
