Review summary

Royal Caribbean is dishonest and is too expensive.

Embarkation

1 out of 5
Ship was 3 hours late due to "scheduled maintenance" at the last port from the last cruise and the ship didn't leave galveston until after 8 pm. Which caused the ship to be late to first port which cut into our time on our paid excursion. Then our second port was supposed to be grand cayman was cancelled on the first night when the port stop wasn't scheduled until Wednesday due to "bad weather". But then turns out two other cruise ships stopped at grand cayman the same day we were supposed to be there. So royal Caribbean is a big fat liar and were very dishonest. When we called the complaint department we were dismissed and they refused to let us speak to a supervisor. And both people were really rude. They would get zero stars if that was an option.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dinning was excellent. The buffet was awful, no variety at all and food was boring and not that great. Drinks were too inexpensive!!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Amenities were great. But as far as activities you have sporting contests and trivia. Too much trivia and not much else.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Shows were excellent!!!

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Overall the staff was awesome!! I did run across a few bartenders that gave my attitude when I was getting non- alcoholic drinks.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Ship was clean and had a great design. The water slides, flow rider, rock climbing wall, and ice skating rink were awesome.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cabin was cleaned twice a day and bed was pretty comfortable. But the size is smaller compared to carnival window room.

Ship tip

Go with carnival. It's cheaper and more fun. But it does have more kids running around, but it you don't mind that....carnival is the way to go. Our anything but royal Caribbean.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

4 out of 5
Basic port.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Just like every other port, too many cheesy shops.

George Town, Grand Cayman Did not visit port

They told us there was bad weather three days before port was scheduled. Turned out two other ships stopped there in the "so called bad weather". So Royal Caribbean is a big fat liar.

Falmouth, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Went to Chukka, it was pretty cool. And the ziplining was awesome. If you do the full course, it's 9 ziplines. They have for wheeling and tubing there too, but didn't do those.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Pretty fast disembarkation.
