Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Royal Caribbean is the top of the line cruise. dining room food, entertainment , friendly staff , extra clean ship. Took my sister & brother in law with us (their 1st cruise) & they loved it. They said they would do it again in a heart beat. We had great vacation with easy boarding & port everglades was very easy to get in & out. Not a fan of free style dining on Norwegian. Will consider drink package on next cruise. getting a little expensive with that gratuity added on every time.
