Review summary

Embarkation

5 out of 5
From our shuttle from the pre cruise stay at a hotel it was like 45 Mins. We stayed in Orlando. Once we got off the shuttle it took 12mins from when our feet hit the ground from the shuttle to walking on the boat. We did all our pre booking via Royal Caribbean App. Simply the best boarding experience ever. didnt have to pay extra for that type if convience like other cruise lines.

Food and Dining

Giovanni's Table

2 out of 5

On our boat it was called Jamies Itialian. First our table was over 30 mins late for our reservations, which i get sometimes so it is what it is. The chef was aware of our party of 9 coming to dine here at this time as they made special Spaghetti and Meatballs for table as 1 in our group really wanted this So when we got this order the meatballs was well over cooked and dry and salty. Also we had missing 3 different entrees which came out 15 mins after our other 6 meals and when they did come out one was missing the chicken from the chicken parm. Im guessing they were having a off night as the whole meal from sitting to eating was just a car wreck. They did make it right by comping the whole meal which was nice since some of us did enjoy. Also all 3 Head chefs came out to apologize to us and later in week head of restaurant sent all our rooms Cholate covered strawberries as a apologize as well So cant fault staff for trying.

Ok so i went here for lunch because 2 other friends wanted to try this. 1. i cant eat cheese and dont like tomatoes or guac things like this. But i did have the homemade tostios like chips and they were amazing. I got the make your own taco with steak,chicken,and beef and make ur own taco came with all fixings including rice. everything was cooked superb and i was able to enjoy tacos the way i like .... plain with meat and rice. lol but simply the gem deal of the ship. only $22 cover charge

Never ate Burger at Guys on Carnival but this is definitely the best burgers ive ever had at sea. wonderful that anything you want from the menu is included with exception of Milk shakes.

Chops Grille

The absolute best food as always on the cruise. From the apps to my steak, simply cant recommend enough. I know it has a cover charge of $50 but well worth it for experience and food.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
So many things to do all day from the triva times at 5:00 to all the shows and Royal Inspired shows like The Quest , Men V. Women. Love and Marriage. There should never be a time when u say hmmmmm ive got nothing to do. Unless u want to do nothing.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
All the shows on stages were great. You cant miss Aqua Theatre shows as they were top notch. see my review below. Grease show was impeccable, headliner ventriloquist was great. really so many great things to say about the entertainment. Our cruise director was not great he was a old guy don’t remember his name but not good at all. he hosted love and marriage show and lots and lots left at halftime.

They have 2 shows here. The Fine Line and Hide a way heist. Both cant miss shows. the performers were top notch. The Fine line has to be THE BEST SHOW IVE EVER SEEN on land or sea. So many wow moments, and between the music and heart stopping moves and effects i was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I would book this boat again just to watch , feel, and experience this show again.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Standard fare for a Boardwalk cabin. Plenty of room for the 3 of us. no issues there. Only issue and may have been my fault more then Royal but the couch once made to bed first night always stayed a bed and would rather have a couch during day. So tip just ask your steward to make couch every day.

Ship tip

Do some early prep for this cruise Ship and book your shows in advance so you dont miss out on the great shows. 2nd tip make friends/tip cash to fav bars/bartenders. Makes way more enjoyable experience. Like few bucks to 10 every once in a while.
