Spring Break Cruise

Sail Date: March 07, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We booked our cruise not expecting that approximately 3,000 college students would also be cruising on the very same ship. Royal Carribbean handled the boisterous situations compassionately and it seemed as though there was plenty of room on the ship for all activities except the pools and hot tubs.

Cabin / Stateroom
Lots of room and the bed was comfortable.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
The dance show was incredible!
Service and Staff
Dining was more exciting with Michael and Danning. Rosemary and Nadine have wonderful customer service skills and a magical touch. Wendy maintained our stateroom, and the staterooms of several college students on spring break, with grace, a smile and always a pleasant word.
Food and Dining
Michael and Danning were great, very accommodating and made the dining experience fun!
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
It took three hours to disembark.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
The landscape and cultural shows are beautiful but beware of the vendors.
Falmouth, Jamaica
Stunning landscape, beautiful people, great food! Be sure to take cash with you on excursions. We booked an excursion with Yardley Tours; Radcliffe and Nathan were very knowledgeable and took the time to ensure our experience was memorable. We loved Jamaica!
