Room Type: Balcony

My husband and I went on this cruise to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We chose the route because the ship stopped at 6 different islands and spend only the last day on the ocean on its way back to Puerto Rico.

The ship itself is very nicely designed, very well kept and clean.

Staff is wonderful and very friendly and always willing to help and do the best to keep the passengers happy.

Food in the two specialty restaurants is great.

We chose to dine our dinner at any time we wanted and when we called each morning to do our reservation for that evening there was always space available. Service was great and food was plenty with a nice variety.

Breakfast at the main dining hall "Windjammer" was not so great. It reminded us a breakfast in a two star hotel. There was plenty of food however the quality and variety was so-so. Service was great but food should be improved.

Shore excursions were very good with plenty to choose from.

Shows and entertainment on the ship were very nice however some of the comedians were pretty lame.

Casino was also very nice with great staff.

Our stateroom was kind of small to a room with a balcony but very clean and nicely kept.

Overall, we had a great experience and we would definitely consider our next cruise with Royal Caribbean.
