Being experienced cruisers, it was the itinerary that caught our attention first. We had not sailed on Royal Caribbean before, nor used Both turned out to be perfect. We felt 'at home' on this ship as it was not the 'super-sized' ships that are now popular. The ship met our comfort levels perfectly and took us to an absolutely wonderful vacation. With the Islands, you are actually forced to relax. The beauty was to behold at each stop, and the beaches pulled you into a state of warm, sweet calm. We enjoyed the classic lines of the ship, the food was as good as it gets on a cruise ship, and the service was worth every cent. We are planning to return and see all the other islands, and will be now preferring these services.

We preferred dining at the Windjammer, buffet. It was as casual as the Islands and fit with the flavor, timing, and relaxation of the experience.
