Review Summary

There is lots to do on board and the staff were generally fantastic; especially housekeeping, guest services and activities. RCL seems to suit families well (we have 3 kids, 9 to 14) and we had a overall great time. The pool water was a bit salty but there was always space to swim or spa and there were heaps of deck chairs. I loved the fact that there were lots of nooks and cranies so you could always find a quiet spot if you wanted. Activities were also varied and well staffed. However, if you are looking for high quality nightime shows (the ice skating show was very good but the in-house singers and dancers were terrible) or really good food and drinks, then consider other cruise lines. The complimentary dining options were overall average. Service and food in Chops Grille and Izumi were both exceptional. Johnny Rockets was also fun and again the service was great. It's worth buying a dining package but unless you plan to drink like a fish don't bother with beverage packages. Either way, it seems cheaper to buy them on board rather than beforehand.
