Review summary

Great first Royal Caribbean cruise. We are definitely sold on the line and have already made future bookings via on-board Next Cruise desk.

It was a bit chaotic. Line staff was trying to push people down, but when we got into the lines they put us in, there were boarding agents to assist.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We cruised with a 2-yo toddler and mainly stuck to Windjammer though we didn''t realize until the second to last night of the cruise we could have gone to main dining room for breakfast and lunch and probably been fine.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Never a dull moment for our daughter. She loved the carousel, open children''s play area, and just generally walking around the ship.


5 out of 5
The water show was really great! We got the chance to catch the rehearsal the first night and then the show during the cruise. We didn''t do any other shows because of our daughter.

Children's Programs

Our daughter was too young and not potty trained yet.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward, Janette, and her co-worker Anico were wondering. Our daughter loved them.

Blisteringly hot. Couldn't do much with a 2-yo. Just enjoyed the pool on the ship.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Still hot, but managed to walk around near the pier and to the nearby fort.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

By the time we got off the ship, it was very crowded and we didn't want to run to find a spot. Just enjoyed the pool on the ship.

We opted for Luggage Valet program since we were flying home the day the ship returned back to Port Canaveral. It was so quick and easy for us to simply leave with our carry-on, grab the shuttle back to the airport, and be all settled in.
