Another fantastic vacation on a Royal Caribbean cruise!

Sail Date: January 31, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

As always, the food is delicious and very well prepared.  The staff is always friendly and helpful, no matter how many times I asked if I was walking to the front or the back of the ship.  The entertainment was the best of any other cruise line - including singers, dancers, ice skating and even The Unexpected Boys who did the songs of The Four Seasons.  All in all, it was a terrifically fantastic vacation.

Ship Quality
Absolutely beautiful, spotless, nothing more to ask for.
Food and Dining
Unbelivably excellent food in both buffet lines or in the beautiful dining room.
