It was our first time on a Royal cruise, having done several other cruise lines. We really enjoyed everything about it. They had tons of activities all day long. The staff was very friendly and the ship was extremely clean. There is a new drinks option where you pay one flat rate, it was more than worth it just not having to sign every slip with your drink purchase. We did the dine any time option and had no problem with seating. They try to keep you in the same area as your server from the first night, so he becomes familiar with you and it creates a nice friendly enviroment. We're looking forward to going back again!

Climb the rock wall before the early afternoon sun starts beating down on it. It gets HOT!
