I would rate this cruise an 8.5 out of 10.  Our 7th cruise but first cruise with Royal so we were not up-to-date on the beverage situation.  Purchased the SP package which includes glasses of wine.  It seemed that wine, if purchased separately, would be about $8/glass which I considered fair so we purchased that package only to discover that with the package, they reach down below the counter and pull out Tisdale.  Yeach!  I was soooooooooooo disappointed.  It is not mentioned that the package would be a $4/ bottle cooking wine.  If you are going to drink about two or three glasses of wine, don't purchase the SP package...just order one at a time from the upper shelves.  I almost feel this was a bait-and-switch scheme.  The other disappointment was the evening entertainment.  Felt the productions were sophomoric.  The upside was the food and dining staff were well above average and, aside from the island of Bermuda itself, was our highlight of the trip.  We ate in the main dining room and did not pay for the extra restaurants so we cannot rate them.

A bit small but very modern and clean. Photo representations on web are very accurate.

King's Wharf, Bermuda Enjoyed the glass-bottom boat and snorkeling.


Be careful and study the beverage packages very closely.
