Review Summary

This was our second cruise but our first with Royal Caribbean. The staff was exceptional!!! So friendly and eager to make your experience "top notch" ! The Virgin Islands were gorgeous with beautiful scenery and  excellent weather! This cruise was so relaxing with dinner served and wonderful shows. Not a cruise for the young though. Average age of guests approx. 70yrs. My daughter was one of 7 teens on board with a total of 17 children out of approx. 1,900 guests.

Alvin extremely efficient! Loved the towel animals. Too bad he wasn't able to get off @ St. Lucia to start his vacation early! Excellent service!!!

Ship Tip

It was very easy to get on and off from the islands. No wait time. But don't lose your sea pass that's everything!!! Would like to see more options for restaurants. We ate @ Chops grill twice but had to pay. Most nights ate @ Gatsby. Romar and Fidel were excellent! Romar has been c RCI for 20yrs!
