Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5

Windjammer Marketplace

3 out of 5

Of our 3 past Royal Cruises this one had probably the least desirable food. From being very bland and limited due to the size, this Windjammer was disappointing. The saving grace was the fact I could get freshly cooked fried eggs.

Johnny Rockets

2 out of 5

To me this was not Johnny Rockets. It was the same burgers served in the Windjammer, shacks were good and since we had the DX package they were plentiful.

Sorrentos

Pizza is pizza, late night snack that you cant go wrong with.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Sundeck was the only place we did any activity. Enjoying the sun and drinks are the what we do for activities we do. Call us lazy but it is our only vacation during the year so it's the relaxation we look forward to.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
I was totally blown away with the aqua show, there was so many different aspects to the Fine Line that you can help but be astonished by the talent Royal hires. The comedy show had me laughing so hard my face hurt. Hats off to the cast and crew of Greese! I would have gone and seen it again if I wasn't at the Fine Line.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
As with our past cruises with Royal, the staff were absolutely terrific. Only problem was with the staff at Johnny Rockets when we were ignored or forgotten about because the staff were to busy talking or focusing on the young ladies when they walk in.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I could not find anything that would not to be expected for a ship this size. I do wish that the Solarium was totally closed in, had high winds and it was impossible to sit in there because of the high pitched whistling from the air blowing through the mesh parts of the canape.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was expected. Bed by balcony door which was ok, would have preferred the sitting area by the balcony. More then ample storage for the two of us. Plenty of outlets for charging. 3 120v, 2 usb, 1 European outlets by the desk with one 120v outlet bu the bed. Bathroom was typical for a cruise ship cabin. Shower seemed to be a little bigger then the previous ships.

Ship tip

Reserve your shows for sure. If you are eating in the buffet get there early or you have a hard time finding a table. Explore this Lady and enjoy all she has to offer.

Ports of call

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
It was better then we expected. We had a cabana on South Beach and were completely blown away by the service we received. Up Up and Away was amazing, the views from above left us in awe. Nothing like being that high seeing the entire island, so many photo opportunities.

As we have been multiple times, we just rent a Jeep and drive around.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

This was truly a paradise for us. The port that we were in was fairly small, especially when you are on an Oasis Class Ship and there is another ship in port. It looks as if there is some construction planned for the port as there was a large area that has been cleared. While there we decided to do the Maya Key Private Island, we were not disappointed one bit. You arrive by water taxi which is about a 10 th minute ride. We made our way to the beach on the opposite side of the island and found our loungers. We spent most of our time snorkeling the Mesoamerican Reef, you are first guided out through the reef to the ledge where you get to see some amazing coral formations. Once you have returned to the dock you are allowed to continue snorkling on your own. Lunch was provided and was pretty good. You had to pay for any drinks but they were worth the cost. I suggest the Banana Diana 👍. The replica Mayan Ruins were a good replication and you did get some education of why it was built. There is an Animal Sanctuary there also, most of the animals are rescues or confiscated from the Caribbean. If you plan on shopping in the port be prepared to fight you way though the shops, as I stated when there are multiple ship it gets crowded.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Dispite being a Cruise Industry port, it was well done. We did the Port Pass which was a great time. The Aviary was fun and had the chance to hand feed many different types of birds. The Chocolate Factory Tour was more of a interactive history play. It was very entertaining and informative. The port itself was a whole lot bigger then we thought and only got to see a small portion since we were doing the port pass. Would definitely go back and see the rest of the area.

Disembarkation

Quick and easy, self assisted at 6:30 and was in my car and on the road around 7. Facial recognition in the port make it a breeze.
