This was our third cruise with Royal Carribean and we thoroughly enjoyed it.  The other cruise we've taken was with Carnival and our opinion is that RCCL is much better.  We were most impressed with the efficiency of the check-in.  It was quicker than we had anticipated that more than 3,000 people would be processed.  Our stateroom attendant kept our room very clean at all times and the towel "sculptures" he made were phenomenal.  We really enjoyed the food in Galileo's, the my time dining saloon.  There was good selection on the menu every night which made choosing what we wanted for starters a difficult choice.  Generally we ended up having  one of the delicious soups plus.  The seafood dishes were especially good and, if you like lobster, make sure you start with the seafood salad.  The selection of freshly cooked warm rolls every night was great.  Our waiter and assistant waiter were very pleasant and made our dining experience even better.  Breakfast in the Windjammer provided a very good selection of foods and no one should leave there hungry unless they are extremely picky.  The ice show was particularly good and not as crowded as we hd been led to believe.  All the stage shows were also good.

We booked a third party excursion through Cruises Only and never made it s the instructions to get to the meeting plce were not very good. When we booked we did not know how long the excursion would be for and it turned out that we would he had a tough time getting back to the ship for the "gt back aboard time."


Park at Port Canaveral Parking, Radisson Hotel. It's nearly 50% cheaper than the port parking.
