Outstanding Crew. Unsatisfactory Ship.

Sail Date: April 18, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Crew was excellent, especially in the dining room.  We were at table 415, late dining.  2 waiters and head waiter were very attentive to wife's special needs.

Stateroom was terrible.  No space.  Our 3 pieces of luggage fit inside of each other and still, as one, took up half the closet space. Wife's long dresses laying on the suitcase.  Little couch for barley 2 people with a 12 inch diameter table.  Bathroom was so small you couldn't bend over without bumping your head on the tiny sink, with water flow so slow you couldn't tell it was on.  Circular shower about 24 inches diameter.  Don't drop the soap.  No room to bend over or stoop to pick it up.

Stateroom was terrible. No space. Our 3 pieces of luggage fit inside of each other and still, as one, took up half the closet space. Wife's long dresses laying on the suitcase. Little couch for barley 2 people with a 12 inch diameter table. Bathroom was so small you couldn't bend over without bumping your head on the tiny sink, with water flow so slow you couldn't tell it was on. Circular shower about 24 inches diameter.

Food and Dining
Plenty of great food in dining room as well as the buffet areas.
Service and Staff
Crew was excellent, especially in the dining room. We were at table 415, late dining. 2 waiters and head waiter were very attentive to wife's special needs. Malachi was especially helpful to wife's dietary needs as she is lactose intolerant.

Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
We used BJ's excursions which was a mistake. One was good and one was terribly misleading. If you go on this cruise, wait and get your excursions on the ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
That picture is so misleading. If that is a large SR.........Must have been taken with a very wide angle lens. I have a regular camera and couldn't get far enough away to get a good picture.
Baltimore, Maryland
The Baltimore port was very efficient in getting the ship loaded.
Cozumel, Mexico
Had a very bad experience with the excursion booked by BJ's that took up most of the time.
George Town, Grand Cayman
just went shopping.
Falmouth, Jamaica
Great because of the excursion to the water falls, rain forest-flower gardens, and bird aviary.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Had fun walking the gauntlet(shopping in the 100's of row house shops) on the hill-side, and the picnic. Royal Caribbean has made the most out of a small strip of land.
