Good, restful cruise

I always enjoy taking Royal Caribbean out of Baltimore.  The ship is convenient to get to (only a 2 hr drive) and easy Port access.  The ship is smaller than the Meg Ships which means less people, can get under the bridges in Baltimore and more locals take this cruise.  The food was delicious, shows fantastic (although when seeing the headliner didn't know what to expect) they were great.  This was a ten day cruise and the weather not the best one stop had to be eliminated due to rough seas for tettering to port. We still had a relaxing time with friends and met some very nice people.  The ship is very clean (crew always cleaning or painting) and keeping germs away with sanitizer everywhere you went keep everyone healthy. Announced this ship will go into dry dock early 2018 and RCI is no longer building smaller to med ships only mega ones for the younger passengers.  Most everyone were retirees and we all like the smaller ships and not so many people.  Hope RCI will consider this clientele since we can travel all winter and not just when school is out.

Cabin / Stateroom
We enjoy the inside cabin. It is smaller and the bathroom was smaller this time than other cruises we have been on (maybe due to having an adjoining room). It was clean and all the room we needed since we're only in it to sleep and change clothes. Sleeping was very good!

Service and Staff
There was some new staff and didn't get the quality service we are used to. I think they just needed more training.
Food and Dining
Baltimore, Maryland
Cozumel, Mexico
George Town, Grand Cayman
Did not get to stop due to weather conditions.
Falmouth, Jamaica
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
The day was windy and rainy. Some people got off the ship but wasn't a great day to be on the beach. The waves were also very high so we stayed on the ship.


Cruises out of Baltimore, MD. Smaller ship so not so many people but still have many things to do. Getting to the port is very easy and convenient. Larger ships can not be brought in due to going under several bridges out of Baltimore and having to cross over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.
