From the moment we boarded to when we disembarked, Royal Caribbean provided us with an atmosphere that allowed us to relax and enjoy ourselves. Any needs or questions we had were met very quickly. Staff was always courteous and professional, but always had a smile or laugh to share.


Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin perfect size for us, all needs met. Did not spend too much time there, off busy doing other fun things.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Make sure to do declaration paperwork even if you do not purchase anything. Staff at customs not happy with you if you don't
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Labadee, Haiti beautiful stop! You can just relax on the beach and not bother with excursions!
Onboard Activities
Plenty of events planned for you to do on your days at sea.
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Wait staff was very attentive and provided us with friendly and courteous service.
Food and Dining
Buffet was bountiful and busy, if you want quiet experience go to King Lear's
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Make sure to take your camera! Beach and surrounding area is beautiful
Falmouth, Jamaica
George Town, Grand Cayman
Cozumel, Mexico
The tour to the Maya ruins and beach was a lot of fun and very educational. Cold beer and fish tacos on beach were delicious!


Plan ahead and make dinner reservations if that is your thing. A good time to meet other passengers and share tips!
