The ship was nice enough. This was our first cruise with RCCL (we have sailed with Princess previously), and we knew going in that RCCL wasn't going to be quite as nice as Princess, but that was OK. It would work. The ship seemed a little small, and dated. There didn't seem to be enough staff around, ever. They didn't do a good job of making sure you were given a handout of the ships orientation as you boarded; you had to find your way around based upon a model in the lobby area by each elevator section. The 600+ kids who ran rampant during the cruise wrecked it for my husband and me. By the 3rd day, I was yelling at them. By the 5th day, he was yelling. By day 6, we had begun counting the hours and minutes until we could escape. We couldn't even go to the "Adult Only" pool and spa area to get away from them, because they were there, too.

Pros: Friendliness of most of staff and crew

Cons: Over 600 out of control, seemingly unsupervised KIDS from 4 to 21
