Review Summary

This was our first trip with Royal Caribbean and we enjouyed it thoroughly. We had a great room with a balcony which made it much more relaxing. The weather didn't cooperate with us but that is to be expected when going to New England in the fall. Portofino's was very elegant and the service was phenomenal. The dining ataff at night was wonderful and couldn't be any friendlier. The shows were a great hit especially the comedians and the one group who were the "Jersey Boys" spin off. Over all it was a great experience although I was a little surprised that there weren't too many places to shop on the ship.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
For the most part, the food was great and plenty of it. However there were a few times when food that shouldn't, did taste a little fishy, especially the lobter tail at the end had this taste.

Our room was always very clean and well taken care of. We looked forward to seeing what kind of "animal" would be on our bed each night!!
