The boat is huge!  There are so many things going on every day that you are never bored.  Nightly entertainment was fantastic except for the ice show.  I'd skip that next time.  Free Starbucks was great, and the food was pretty good.  We ate in the Italian specialty restaurant one night and was disappointed in the service and ambiance of the venue, but the food was great.  Our biggest surprise was with the dress code, or lack thereof, in the main dining room.  Even though RC states that shorts and t-shirts are not permitted, people were dressed in cargo short, flip flops, and football (US and EU) every night.  Even on the 2 formal nights people were in jeans and untucked polo shirts.  I thought RC had higher standards.  Other than this issue, the cruise was fantastic.  We will cruise with RC again.

Stay at the Holiday Inn Club Vacations in Port Canaveral before the cruise. They offer parking while you are on the cruise and have a very cheap shuttle company they work with. They are about 1/2 mile away from the boat.

For a good quick lunch, go to the Starbucks. Their sandwiches are good and free.
