Review summary

Royal Caribbean has the best loyalty program in the cruise industry. The Concierge Club is in an area inside the ship without windows which is not ideal but the bar staff was excellent! The Windjammer crew was right on spot, cleaning and organizing.

Lines were a little long but the staff handled them well. People who were not handicapped ended up in the handicapped line though. Being shorter I guess they thought they could get ahead of everyone else.

Ship tip

Lots of small children on this cruise so I would suggest folks that don't want to sail with a lot of children to book a longer cruise and one that does not include a school holiday!

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
Miami is always hustling and bustling.

Nassau, Bahamas

Nice port to get off and walk around town.

Never fun trying to get off a ship after a cruise but we were able to wait on ship while the majority of the people left so it wasn't too bad
