Midsize ship, lots to do, kid made some great friends she still talks to several years later. She was 14 at the time. Took advantage of as many activities as possible.
I recommend to go on it since its perfect in size.
Don't miss the exteror promenades on decks 4 and 5...i believe the entrance to to bow/helipad are on deck 4. Beautiful views, peace and quiet...NO ONE was ever there!!
Easy ship to get around on
On any cruise, don't loose your ID.
Try to make it to all the shows a tad bit early because they get full. Also the buffet gets super busy too so be sure to go right when they start serving or before they are about to close.
Don't loose anything or have a clain. If you get your money it takes over 4 months.
This is a great ship and staff. You cant go wrong with RC. Enjoy your trip.
Deck 4 is the best place to watch when you pull away from and into a port.
Find Ashton on the pool deck, he is great.
Make sure to catch the ice show in Studio B - impressive what those skaters can do on a small rink on a rocking ship.
Not too big not too small, just right
A few tips - 1) research the shore excursions and typical shipboard activities before your cruise date. 2) Go to the early show then go to dinner - less busy at dinner and no rush to get to the show. 3) take advantage of The Key and drink packages - purchase before hand.
Being our first cruise, no one told us about the different nights of dress and we were not prepared for much of the fun during the evening. Also, be prepared to wait for the elevator. It is a long wait.
Get plenty of rest before you go. There are alot things to see and do. Even on the days that spent sailing all day.
Book shore excursions prior to port days, otherwise it’s overwhelming. Keep an eye out on drink packages, they change constantly. DO NOT skip paying your gratuities. These men and women work really hard to give you the best experience. If you run into a problem, ask for help, the staff is always willing to find an answer for you. This is an awesome ship. After a day of walking around we found our way around. If you get a chance to hang out on the helipad on deck 4 do it, its not always open. If you are traveling via plane to the port, arrive a day early, and leave yourself plenty of time to get back to the airport on debarkation day. Look up your cruise’s Facebook group and make new friends before your cruise.
We never pay for internet because we want to be disconnected from the rest of the world, but Royal’s app is way behind Carnival’s app. You cannot chat through Royals app making it nearly impossible to keep up with others in your group.
