My husband and I have taken several Royal Caribbean Cruises, but this was our children's first experience and they Loved it!! We decided on a shorter cruise for the first timers. The itinerary was great. We had the most amazing experience swimming and feeding the stingrays on Nassau and entered paradise on Royal Caribbean's Private Island - CocoCay. We wish that we had another day there because there is so much to do and simply not enough time to do it all! We also would recommend taking the 4 day over the 3 day cruise because we enjoyed seeing Key West and probably would not have ever made the long drive down from Miami...this is a great way to get there! A couple of cons to mention but not enough to stop you from sailing...Our stateroom was located on deck 6 which I loved because it was so centrally located but if you are a light sleeper you might want to consider another deck...deck 7 is open to the ocean air and because of this they have to maintain it regularly by scrubbing down the deck. Unfortunately, they choose to do it at 4 am and the high pressure water and banging from the scrubbing does wake you up. The children slept through it , but my husband and I did not. Also, the re-fillable soda cup cost us $88 for 3 kids and 1 adult. We are not big soda drinkers to begin with but we purchased in order to avoid a large bar tab later. The wait staff did not seem to be very pleased about having to refill the mugs and we simply were not on the ship long enough to make it worth the money. We would have liked to see an unlimited water bottle option as it cost $2.00 per bottle (or more depending on the size of the bottle) and we liked to take them with us on excusions.
