Bravo to Royal Caribbean!

Sail Date: November 17, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: GTY

The cruise is worth every penny.     Check in was fairly easy,  waited in line for about 30 minutes but did expect that.  Young lady who checked us in was very informative and cheerful.  Our room was very nice, clean, and we enjoyed the balcony very much and recommend choosing a room with one.  Our room stewart Agus was attentive, non intrusive, helpful, always smiling and cleaned the room at least twice a day.  There is lots of activities to keep you busy all day or places to retreat on deck to relax and read or nap.  Our head waiter Alex was charming and right on top of everything.    The food was delicious and plentiful.  I would recommend having lunch in the restaurant when possible instead of the buffet, less options but more enjoyable and it was excellent.   You may as well go to the buffet for breakfast, its crowded but lots of choices and everything is clean and presented nicely.  I would recommend not playing the slot machines,   we did and pretty much got zero return.   If you like to gamble stick to the tables.
