Celebrating husband's 50th birthday was very relaxing entertainment was good and most of the food was good. Would recommend to others we have been on 17 cruises so we are pretty familiar with experience of cruising.
The cruise with Royal was great. Other than Astoria, OR, I enjoyed all of the ports visited. Check in and departure was very well organized. In years past, it was chaotic but Royal has finally got it down to a science. Will definitely cruise with them again if the itinerary fits our travel plans.
Nothing I can add to the above but even though I am at the Diamond level, my overall impression is that RCCL has deteriorate from what it was 10 years ago and, compared to Carnival, Celebrity (it's sister ship) and Princess, it is overpriced for comparable routes and cabins. I will carefully evaluate RCCL in the future against other options. I opted not to make an onboard deposit even when they take the deposit off the current cruise bill as I doubt if I will take another RCCL cruise.
This was our first cruise. I would take another but would take a larger ship and perhaps a longer cruise. A few people in our party felt some seasickness, so bring mess with you so you have options without having to pay to see a doctor on board.
