Review summary

For our first cruise and our honeymoon, Royal Caribbean delivered. This was a cruise that was not only worth doing but worth doing again. There's too much too see in one trip. You have to go back more than once.

We had The Key so it was smooth. I plan to purchase it again on my next cruise.

Food and Dining

CHOPS IS THE TRUTH!!!! If I were to pick one specialty dining restaurant, I would DEFINITELY recommend that!!! Johnny Rockets was also good. Windjammer offers a nice selection.

I thought the shows were good. I thought the DJs were good except I requested certain songs for the gathering for the honeymooners and they didn't have them. Other than that, I think they did a good job.

Children's Programs

I was on my honeymoon.

Cabin / Stateroom

I found the cabin to be comfortable. My ONLY complaint was the bed. I found it to be uncomfortable with my bad back.

Ship tip

For your first time, if you're really not a beach person, just take one of the taxi island tours that are waiting outside of the port. It'll take you around between 2-3 hours. If you're looking to hang out at the beach, the tours are usually around 5 hours.

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

There was more to do than I originally thought. I have to go back so I can finish the island.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
We didn't do an island tour since it was our first cruise but we did go downtown. I DEFINITELY recommend Gladys' Cafe.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Castries, St. Lucia

We did an island tour. It was a beautiful island.

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
We did an island tour. I think this was probably the most beautiful island on the itinerary. You get to see where Rihanna originally grew up and her current house.
