phenomenal, just not long enough

Sail Date: January 19, 2013

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Cabin: handicap

Ship was gorgeous, dining room food was great, entertainment was phenomenal, LOVED the promenade, ship took our breath away from the beginning, cookies were AMAZING!!

Staff wasn't as friendly or attentive as on carnival surprisingly.

Only other possible complaint: royal doesn't have "real" food options available for long enough during the day. Windjammer not functioning way too much of the day. To be beat out by carnival in this respect? Kind of pathetic. Carnivals buffet was way better. Weird, I know.

Cruises we've now been on.... ranked:
1. Liberty: RC
2. Imagination: carnival
3. Majesty: RC

Bucket list in order:
1. Norwegian (breakaway, getaway or epic to try the food options)
2. Princess (regal or royal)
3. RC (allure or oasis)

And no more short cruises or small ships for us: you need more time to unwind than four days at least, and if you're going to spend the time and money to get there etc, it's not worth it if the ship doesn't have the wow factor.

My ideal cruise: one on a cool ship like the liberty that JUST goes to the private islands.....because those are amazing, and you can't beat going ashore where everything is free!!!!!!!

Destinations and Excursions
went for the ship, not the destinations, would have preferred the itinerary with labadee, but couldn't make it work with our schedule.


Order breakfast in bed every morning. It was so so good and so relaxing.
