Good Cruise though the level seems to have gone down

Sail Date: December 20, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

We always go as a big group and this was our fourth cruise. We had earlier cruised with Royal Caribbean and Carnival. The quality of food and service and that we experience on the previous Royal Caribbean and Carnival was definitely better that what we experienced on this cruise. On our Carnival cruise, the staff was much more lively and attentive to our needs than on this cruise. I am a little disappointed as we know that Royal Caribbean can do better.

Ship Quality
In general the ship quality was great except for some issue with cold water in the showers
Food and Dining
Food and Dining experience was definitely lower than we had expected or received during the previous cruises
Service and Staff
The staff was not much attentive to our needs initially but after we complained they stepped up.
Reasonably good
Onboard Activities
The Rock Climbing was a great experience
Destinations and Excursions We arranged our own
San Juan, Puerto Rico El Yunque is a must in San Juan
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas Beautiful beaches
Basseterre, St. Kitts Went on an island tour. Not much to do.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten Beautiful island.
Bridgetown, Barbados The beach was good but we couldn't explore the town as everything was closed due to Christmas
