Review summary

Wonderful cruise with delays on each end due to weather. Bermuda was sunny and beautiful. Our cruise had repairs in the Centrum that limited access and seating, but those appear to be finishing up. Heavy seas coming back to Baltimore had dishes falling in the main dining room.

Embarkation

3 out of 5
Because the ship got into port at 2 pm, no one was allowed to enter cruise terminal until around 5 pm. However, the check in process went smoothly once we were allowed to go into the terminal building.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We were a bit disappointed by the food being served in the main dining room. It was not as top notch compared to past sailings on this ship. We ate one lunch in Chops and don't think that specialty restaurant is worth the money.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We did not use the activities listed above, but we found plenty to do

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The singers and dancers are talented and we enjoyed them. However, to me, the choreography was dissapointing.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Cabin attendant was superb. The crew would always greet you cheerfully in the hallways. This is definitely the friendliest ship in Royal Caribbean's fleet.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We are sad that this ship is leaving the Royal Caribbean fleet in 2021. Royal Caribbean needs to build more this size ship to replace the older ones. The huge ships will limit available ports to sail out of and into.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cabin is small, but works for two people. The first night we slept with the beds together, but there is very little room to get in and out of the bed. You literally have crawl into bed. We had the beds separated for the rest of the cruise. This provided an aisle to get into the bed and opened up more space to move around. The bathroom was one of the smallest we've ever had, but it worked. We heard any noise from the cabins either side of us. Also, we heard noise from the theater above. During heavy seas the drawers and anything with a hinge opened, if it didn't have a latch.

Ports of call

Baltimore, Maryland

2 out of 5
Roads around the port are in poor shape and unless you know where you are going, it is difficult to get to the cruise terminal. We did not take any excursions, but there are some interesting places to see; Ft McHenry for example.

King's Wharf, Bermuda

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Self assist is a bit confusing and very crowded, but once it started moving, it went quickly.
