Amazing! Best Cruise So Far

Sail Date: August 31, 2015

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

This was my 3rd cruise and 1st with my children.  Lots of things to do if you take the time to read the newsletter provided in your stateroom daily.  My girls are 6 and 10 and never once said they were bored (for my 10 yr. old that is an accomplishment in its own).  They rock climbed, swam in the pool on board, ate unlimited pizza at all hours of the night, for my 2 picky eaters they ate EVERYTHING they seen at the buffets and at dinner time, even asking for multiple servings.  The rooms were cozy but we did not spend much time in them to even let it bother us.  The ports were so much fun.  In Nassau, Bahamas do not hesitate take the car/taxi to Cabbage beach, the walk is so exhausting especially with the kids.  Bring lots of cash otherwise you will not be able to enjoy the umbrella or taxi/car ride back to the ship because the locals only work in cash.  RCI said we did not need cash on the private island, but trust me you need CASH,CASH, CASH.  They have a straw market that only accepts cash unless you like paying 3x's the amount for the ease of being cashless and using the sea pass on Coco Cay.  They gave you water, lemonade, tea, coffee, milk, variety of juices on board so no need to buy a souvenir cup unless you want to drink soda's on board.  And no I was not paid to write this review it is truly genuine!

Cabin / Stateroom
Good size window to view the ocean and city ports. The beds we alright, a bit thin, the Pullman beds were great for the kids. They kept building tents and crawling back and forth from each others side.

Go to Cabbage Beach, save $ on excursions and just go there. The beach is AMAZING! Take an actual taxi/car the water boat is okay but the walk to Cabbage beach is long and exhausting. BRING CASH the locals only deal in CASH...
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
BRING CASH the straw market only deal in CASH...The Royal Caribbean stores use Sea Pass but cost 3x's more. Snorkling stunk if you cannot go out very far. The snorkle beach area was dirty and TONS of seaweed, but the free swim beach was nice and clean and almost sea weed free. Also you cannot take sea shells even though you can find tons of cool looking ones and if you want to see different sea life bring a piece of bread and break it up in the water for the fish, if you feed them they will ALL come. We had little, fish, then medium fish, then a stingray and then a 3 ft fish come in the very shallows 3-9" (less than a foot) of water to eat the bread or the smaller fish.
Key West, Florida
Conch train tour was nice. You get to see everything before going to explore. Wish I did the Ghost tour though that looked fun. Also bring cash the street vendors such as fruits and snow cones take cash only.


If you lock yourself in your room you will miss your vacation/holiday. Your room is to sleep, wash up and get ready to explore.
