Review SummaryThis was my first cruise on a Royal Caribbean ship. I have previously sailed on Princess, Celebrity, American, Commadore, Carnival, and Norweigen. This cruise should be compared to the midsize Carnival ships, but it is not a party ship. Very peaceful. The average age on the ship appeared to be fifty to sixty. I didn't see many children or teens. The ones that I saw were well behaved. The staff service was excellent and they were also very friendly. The entertainment was good. The ports of call were very short in duration. Most of the seafood on the menu was good, but the people at our table who preferred beef were not pleased. The check-in process was extremely lengthy at the pier and we had to leave our rooms by 8:00 A.M to sit in public areas for two hours to disembark the ship. Dress for the last night on the ship was Casual Elegent, but most people ignored this advice and dressed causual in order to pack before dinner.
Ports of Call
Pros: Cool weather made excursions and being on deck very nice for a summer cruise
Cons: The show in the main theater started at 6:45, defeating the purpose of having late dinner seating.
