Overall, a pretty good cruise. The service was excellent! It is very evident that Royal Caribbean impresses upon their staff a culture of customer service excellence. The boat itself was beautiful of course and the rooms clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed the themed activities (50/60's, 70's and 80's nights) However, overall, I must admit to being a bit disappointed in the overall variety of activities offered daily - particularly on "sea" days when there should be alot more. The boat does have alot of sport activity type offerings though. Main dining room food was good but in my opinion, the buffet wasn't great and I felt food in general was better on Princess as were the activity offerings. Cruise ports were good and embarkation/disembarkation were fairly painless.
