Great ship, loads to do during the day and evening. All 4 of our children love the kids camp. Food good, service generally excellent. Would recommend.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I think the food is pretty good (better than ok) and great for 'mass catering. Not a big fan of windjammer/ buffet concept but think the main dining room is very well done and in general has pretty good food.

Onboard Activities

Would like a slightly younger vibe to some of the shows. Also the ice show was exactly the same as last year.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Needs more variety and they need to do what they say they're going to do on the program. My kids were sometimes frustrated at them not delivering the promised activity. From our 3 cruise experiences on RC, some staff are great, others not so much.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All 3 cruises we've had with Royal Caribbean the staff have waiting staff and room staff have been really great. In the kids camp some staff are really good, others not so good.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Extremely clean and well maintained

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We have the interior rooms (cheapest) and I find them absolutely fine. Comfortable, well organised and in great condition.
