Review summary

This was our third Royal Caribbean cruise and we were again pleased. We stayed in an ocean view room and will do that on our next cruise as the room was a nice size and it was nice to see the ports as we came in.  The food and service in the dining room was great and we meet interesting people.  The nightly entertainment was good, but not as good as our Mediterranean cruise.  The ice skating show was excellent.  Our excursions were interesting and worth the money.  We will definitely cruise with Royal Caribbean again.
