Great Experience

Sail Date: September 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

We left Port Liberty one day before Hurricane Earl was to reach this area. The captan had the foresight to leave port early and highball up the coast to safer waters. The decision was the right thing to do because the seas were very calm and the ship was so smooth that I had to look outside to see if we were moving. Boarding was a smooth very quick operation, the fastest I have ever seen. The dinning room and dinning experience were equal to five star. The entertainment was Broadway quality and the ice show was spectacular. Captan Olof, is the only captain that I have ever seen interact with the passengers and crew, his concern for everyone is truly remarkable. Over the years I have been on many a cruise but this cruise was probably the best ever. The ship is great, the crew is great, the service was great, hats off to Royal Caribbean.

Pros: The expertise of the Captan, the food the entertainment the ambience of the ship the helpfulness of the crew et al.

Cons: having to depart
