Review summary

Please use patience when cruising these ships. There can be delays for embarkation and ports of call can be cancelled. We did not visit St. Kitts and it was disappointing but RCL did give us extra on board credit and we bought some art.

Embarkation

Ships main dinning room had some issues with the food quality. Windjammer was actually better than the main dinning room. A first with us.

Service and Staff

Servers were excellent and the dining room captain corrected the food quality problem by giving us complimentary premium filets.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Highest standard. Oasis class. Stable underway even with higher seas. I have never seen a ship that was so large so nimble. We had to go back to St. Martin for a passenger's medical issue after we were 25 miles away. Nice of the captain to do so. The ship nimbly turned around and docked in 5 minutes. With thrusters engaged the sick passenger was removed and we made the next port of call early. There was another unscheduled stop at Coco Cay on the way to St Martin for disembarking workers for the Emerald Seas sold to RCL startup. Even with the 3 hours stop we made St. Martin on time. It was thrilling to pass other cruise ships like they were standing still (23 knots) in this Large majestic vessel. We must have looked like a white blur to them. Ship was top notch in cleanliness. Only one empty hand sanitizer the whole time.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Actually we got a huge upgrade free. Balcony 10210 perfect view midship. I have not choice but to give this a strong "5"
