Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining room service was excellent. Food was good, but not as good as in previous RC cruises. Royston and Romeo were excellent at dinner each night. The wonderful Bread Pudding with vanilla sauce is no longer available at the lunch buffet. Pizza is no longer available at the 11 floor lunch buffet.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Pool and Hot tubs. 5th floor promenade was very enjoyable.

It is a nice island, the excursion was interesting, the guide was OK.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Old San Juan was looking better than expected, considering the hurricane, it has recovered quite nicely. The guide from Countryside Tours did not show up. We had to join and pay for a local tour. it was good and the guide was also good. Shore Excursions LLC is working on issuing a refund.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

3 out of 5
I will skip this port in the future. Lunch was not so good and poorly handled.
