Review summary

Excellent Product. Highly recommend the ship for its diversity of entertainment, dining and ability to relax. On most of the ship, you do not feel that there are a lot of people on board.


5 out of 5
Seamless - Quick. Traffic backup getting to ship but once the taxi stopped, Royal Caribbean handled the check in process seamlessly. No lines - Curbside to Ship in 15 minutes or less

Stayed in a GREAT suite. Housekeeping was amazing and attentive. Balcony was HUGE. Cabin size was AMAZING.

Ship tip

Buy the Internet package. Speed is just as good as you have at home. Be patient with elevators. Dine in the specialty restaurants. Jonnny Rockets, the Asian restaurant and Italian restaurant are worth the surcharge. I thought Alice in Wonderland and Chops were overrated.
