Review Summary

Overall very happy with this cruise. This was our first ever cruise. And first time to Europe. We were celebrating our honeymoon. It was a great first time in Europe as everything is taken care of by Royal Caribbean. From the second you get to the port they take care of everything. They make it very easy both on the boat and with the excursions. We opted for a room with a balcony and I highly recommend this option. It was nice to be able to get away from the crowds. The breakfast and lunch dining was usually a bit chaotic but dinners were nice and relaxed. There was always something going on on th eship if you opted out of the excursions. The excursions were expensive but again they take care of everything. No waiting in lines for anything, the transportation was all arranged, and the boat will wait for you if your excursion is late (they wont if you book trips on your own).
