Review Summary

A short (4-day) cruise on an older, smaller ship and a disappointing Royal Caribbean experience 12 years ago put us at low expectations for this economy vacation choice. We could not have been more surprised. The ship's decor is very modern and attractive. Navigation and public areas feel like a hotel, minimizing the sense that you're on a ship. Most of the ship is wheelchair-friendly, which was important to us for this trip. The food was exceptionally good, even in the buffet service restaurant. The service from nearly all of the staff was also exceptional. We only had a couple of issues with one of the casino dealers and the dining room hostess being cold and aloof. Our superior ocean view cabin was spacious, tastefully decorated, and clean as a whistle. The bed was incredibly comfortable as well. Overall, the four night trip was a wonderfully relaxing break from reality with few disappointments and a credit to the Royal Caribbean brand.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Shouldn't have to pay extra for lobster and steak - at least offer it one night at no premium charge.


3 out of 5
If entertainment value is a primary concern, pick another ship/itinerary. We enjoyed the bingo and the adult comedy show, but the entertainment as a whole was average with few things we found appealing by title and elected to not attend/participate (e.g. juggling was the prime time show one night).

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
With a couple of exceptions, the staff was the best part of the trip for us in some respects.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship looks great. Only wish we had to compete less for pool deck and buffet restaurant seating.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Stateroom was fantastic - spring for the superior OV for more space.

Pros: Food and staff services

Cons: Limited pool and buffet seating
