Review summary

Again, we love this size ship and enjoyed everything about the ship except food in the dining room is not as good of quality as we have in past cruises either with RC or other cruise lines.

Great. From the time we arrived until we were on the ship things went smoothly.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food in Main dining room has gone down over the years. I believe that the cruise lines are putting all their energy into the specialty restaurants where you have to pay extra. Main dining room food is average. Nothing to brag about. However we bought the Key Plan and were allowed to eat our lunch the first day and the menu was same as at the Chops and that food was awesome. Again, we had to pay extra to have great meal. Shouldn't have to be that way.

Even though we might have liked a larger balcony, we were very happy with the room and balcony as well.

We did a tour of the city and the Atlantis. Our drive was born and raised on the Island and did a great job !!

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

We had the key plan . Had a very relaxing time in the dining room for breakfast and then left the ship. Great and relaxing cruise.
