Incredible 7 Night Mediterranean Cruise In The Calm Waters Off The Coast Of Europe by Partcentpc

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Overall, our cruise was fantastic. We would do it again. This was our 12 cruise total, but our 1st cruise on Royal Caribbean. We may cruise with Royal again, or we may go back to Carnival. It is undecided at this time. This is probably not the best cruise to spend money on the drink packages, because, if you visit each port, by the time you get back to the ship and have dinner, it's time to get some sleep (even for us young people), as you have to be up early in the morning in order to travel great distances to see the next port. This is unlike the Caribbean where you just step off the ship, grab some beers and tacos and stroll about your day. We felt like seeing these cities was equivalent to going to work every day! You won't need to buy the internet package on the ship if you have cell service, since you can get service from shore even while the ship is at see on all days except for the last at sea day where the ship cuts across the Mediterranean Sea from Naples to Barcelona. Save your money, and only buy it on the last day.

Best family vacation yet by JJJLara

We all loved it! Great family vacation! There was something for everyone. It was comfortable to be there with kids, elegant but not too stuffy. We will definitely be cruising with Royal again.

The pizza on the Promenade was pretty good as we're some of the sandwiches from the coffee shop. The food in the Windjammer was nearly as good as what was in the dining room and if you prefer to dress more casually then that is the place to be....not as stuffy. There was always a good selection.

Pizza was free at the Pizza place on the promenade. The drinks aren't free, but if you have one of the drink packages it pays off. Tips are included in the purchase of the package. They had a cupcake shop and I bought one of the cupcakes for a little over 2 dollars. It was delicious!

The food in the Starbucks coffee shop is free (although the Starbucks is not) - not many people realized this and there was never a line.
