Food and Dining

I thought he food would have been better. Don't get me wrong, the food was very good. It is just that so many people said the food on RCL is the best. Too be honest the food on Disney and NCL was better on my prior cruises. Maybe it is harder to cook for so many people.

Room was bigger than I expected.

Ports Of Call

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)

5 out of 5
We also loved this. The only problem is they are building it up too much. The are preparing for their new ships which have 6000 guests. Pretty soon it is going to look like Disney. I am sure it was nicer when it was just a beach.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Shopping is incredible. We loved Saphire beach.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
The fort is great but the grounds around it were very dirty. The locals should take better care of their beautiful island. Old San Juan is picturesque.

Samana, Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
This was our favorite port. The mainland is a waste of time other than buying a few things from pushy vendors. The ship has an excursion to an island Cayo Levantado which was fantastic. Worth the cost.

Pros: Departure Port, Kids program

Cons: The coffee. Otherwise all was great
