Our Second Cruise With Royal Caribbean

Sail Date: April 05, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The check in process was extremely fast, so the earlier the better to get on the ship. We received our luggage by Dinner Time that day. Our Balcony was good. The buffet food was only ok. It was much better on the other Royal Caribbean cruise. After dinner shows were good but very limited entertainment. Other cruises we have been on have included comedy shows or shows such as Blue Man Group. We went with another couple and the problem they encountered was the people next to their cabin were smoking weed on their balcony. Security was called twice and no action was taken. Our friends paid for a balcony but could only use it when their neighbors were not there. Very disappointing how this was handled . Unloading was very good.
