Review summary

The ports of call were wonderful.  We sailed to San Juan, Puerto Rico, St. Marengo and St. Kitts.  It was extremely easy getting on and off the ship at each port.  The shows each evening were pretty darned god from the acappella group to the male singer to the ice skating shows.  Special note....make sure to see the ice skating show.  It was amazing.


  Dinners in the main dining rom ranged from good to very good.  We ate in two specialty dining rooms, Chops and Giovanni's.  Chops was so good we ate there three of the eight nights.  Giovanni's was not good.  We ate there at 6:00p.m. One night and three of our four dinners were cold to lukewarm.  There was no excuse for this as the restaurant only had about eight people eating that early.  Also, the food was tasteless.  C'mon Royal Caribbean, you can do better than this.

Our cabin was kept immaculate by the able hands of Basel Duncan our cabin steward. He excels at his job and Royal Caribbean is to be commended for having such a great cabin steward on board.
