Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Although showing a little wear and tear this ship is in great condition for 11 years old. We we told that the ship is going in for upgrades this summer. Hopefully they will upgrade the TV's ours had all kinds of issues and worked when it felt like it. Talked with other passenger who had theirs replaced and it was worse so decided to keep what we had.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
sailed with another couple and thought we were getting 2 cabins in a great location by the charting that we saw online. What we didn't see is that this little hallway was also the access fro the crew to get into our area. Constant banging of doors all night long and activity behind the doors and walls 24 hours a day. Additional cabin was 4539. Actual cabin itself was up to RCCL standards and steward was top notch.

Ship Tip

Sea View cafe is on the back of ship and to get there after Windjammer closes you must go thru the outdoor kids area on the 12th floor. They make a great burger, chix fingers and have beer and wine. The downside is you have to pay $10 per person plus tip to eat there.
