Lots of Fun on first-time Cruise

We had a blast. We felt so pampered! Everything we needed was readily available. The staff was amazing. The food was delicious. The onboard shopping was great. The activities were fantastic!


The only complaints we had was the embarkation was a mess and some activities were canceled without notification. We couldn't hear the announcements because the tent was loud and the speaker system was horrible and the staff didn't make an effort to make sure the messages were being broadcasted to everyone. They left it up to our fellow guests. Also, while onboard, we understand that some events would have to be canceled. No advanced or notification at the time of the event was given. Our only clue that it was canceled was because no one showed up. There was an event at the SPA that was canceled. We asked them to notify us when it was rescheduled but never got a notification.


All in all though, we enjoyed this cruise with Royal Caribbean a LOT and are looking forward to repeating the experience with them!

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
First the positive, the disembarkation was a breeze. Very organized and low stress. Embarkation was another issue especially because this was our first cruise and didn't know what to expect. We were ushered into a waiting area that looked like a revival tent. The air machines were way loud and the sound system was horrible. We couldn't hear the woman making the announcements at all and there was no effort by the staff to make communication more accessible. So very low marks on that account!
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
This is a mixed bag because we loved all of the variety of onboard activities. I couldn't give this the full marks though because there were a few activities that were scheduled and we tried to go but no one was there (they canceled at the last minute) and there was no indication at all that they were canceled. Also, once the SPA had an activity that was canceled. We asked the SPA personnel to notify us when they rescheduled but no one got back to us.
Children's Programs
We don't have kids but there were a lot of activities to draw kids away from us which was really good news for us!
The shows were so amazing!
Service and Staff
Everyone was for the most part very courteous and treated us so well! We loved the wait staff, the bartenders, the cooks, the cabin crew and the entertainers!
Food and Dining
The food was amazing! We did not enjoy the main dining hall as much but we LOVED the WindJammer café!
