Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 9268

Overall the cruise was very good and I would cruise on Royal Caribbean again. The suite room and balcony were larger then expected. Very helpful and friendly staff. Clean ship and fun excursions. Very confusing "My Time Dining". Makes it sound like you can show up and eat whenever you want but that was not the case. We had to make reservations and with only one night exception we were not able to be seated until within about 5 minutes of that time. Also not happy with the beverage package. Paid daily fee per adult to have soft drinks and every day either the machines were out of ice, out of drinks or out of order completely. For the size of the ship they should have had more machines or had someone servicing them more often. We definitely did not get our money worth for the cost.

Room and balcony larger than expected. Room Steward was very attentive, responsive, helpful and friendly. He had the "Wow" factor.
