Overall the ship was great but we were EXTREMELY disappointed that there was no warning that the whole cruise would be in Spanish. I used to work on cruise ships as a dancer. I was newly engaged and my fiance and I decided to take the cruise to celebrate our engagement. I do not speak Spanish and not one thing during the booking said the cruise was all Spanish. In fact\, I booked the cruise through Delta\, my favorite airline\, all in English. We tried to make the best of it but it was very disappointing.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We highly recommend the extra dining options. We ate at Chops Grill\, Izumi and Giovanni's. All were great!


5 out of 5
Again\, we would have enjoyed more if we could have understood.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The cruise staff was excellent and the Rotal Caribbean singers and dancers were amazing. Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy most of the activities because they were all in Spanish.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
We were informed the Solarium pool was an adult only facility but always found children running around\, splashing in the pool and using the hot tub/jacuzzi.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The toilet wouldn't flush sometimes and there was an odor most of the time.

Pros: The ports were amazing!

Cons: The cruise was all in SPANISH including the entertainment :(
