This was our 9th cruise overall and our third with Royal Caribbean. The good stuff - clean, well maintained vessel with an attentive crew; ship layout is sensible and interactive displays on each deck are very helpful; entertainment was very good to excellent; activities are numerous and well planned; ports visited were very nice and pleasant with no street beggars (Labadee is the best cruise line private area we've seen); we were on deck 2 aft so some engine noise was apparent but not objectionable; cabin otherwise was comfortable and the temperature controls worked; basically a nice cruise we'd recommend so long as you don't mind 5 days of sailing only. The not so good stuff - this cruise was sort of crowded and obtaining a deck chair around the pool or in the solarium was often difficult (I think people 'save' the chairs even though the ship's policy is otherwise); the main dining room had excellent service and food presentation was above average but the food quality was not what we expected, some food was overdone (steaks and other meat dishes) and some veggies were a bit crunchy-we've seen better; the Windjammer breakfast buffet was better than the lunch or dinner offerings, here again the food quality was not quite what we expected and the variety was a little shy of expectations.

The Windjammer buffet for breakfast is the way to go.
