Children's Programs

2 out of 5
My 11 year old daughter went to ocean adventure once and was not expressed. I think for her age she should have been put in the teen category, but she is a little more mature that most 11 year olds so she did not fit in at ocean adventure and was board. Because she is 11 they would not let her join the teens program 12-16. I think they could be a little more flexible on their age range.

Video Arcade

A little small, and scanning your card is a little difficult. Some machines did not work.

Adventure Ocean

2 out of 5

It was ok, they did not stick to the activities on the schedule. They said one thing and did something totally different. My 11 year old daughter was VERY bored with their program. After only being in their a hour or 2 she gave up and did her own thing and had more fun....

Service and Staff

Great cabin, perfect for my family. A little small but it meet our needs

Ship tip

Mid ship elevators are always busy, use the forward elevators when possible.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

4 out of 5
Did not do a excursion, but Miami is a beautiful city and a busy city.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Loved Nassau, did a sightseeing tour of the city (essential Nassau) love it and learned alot about Nassau.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

4 out of 5
Excellent place to relax on the beach. Vendors are a little pushy. Excursion are way a little pricey, for Royal Caribbean to own/lease that island they could lower their prices a little. $99 for a 20 second zip line ride is way overpriced. And the jet ski are over priced.
