Easter/ Passover Cruise

Sail Date: March 31, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Cruise took place over the Easter /Passover break so there were many families and about 300 children. The kids were everywhere. It was expected.

The Ship was well maintained. The food was good (escargot every dinner).The stage shows were OK. They usually had one headliner(not a variety show). The staff was excellent. We had been to the ports before but we did find things to do. Remember it was a holiday weekend ,so some stores were closed.. By the way there was a priest and a rabbi on board for services. Look, we wanted a convenient port and sun. We got it. We thought the music was great. The Rosario Strings played heavenly music!! Royal Caribbean tries really hard to please. Leaving from Baltimore,the first and last sailing days are seasonal in temperature  but there are ways to keep entertained. That's about it. There were 2100 passengers on the ship and 1,100 were Royal Caribbean repeaters. That sums it up
