Cruise was fun but somewhat of a money pit

This was our first cruise and the food was better then I expected.  The only problem was everywhere we turned there was money being requested.  Whether we attended the art show where free art was suppose to be given away or free lessons in the casino everything had a catch.  The free art give away required framing and shipping that far out weighed the fun of winning.  The bingo required purchases, the casino lessons required money outlay and every where we turned from tipping for the drinks (that we had already paid an unlimited high fee to have) included additional tipping requested fees.  With us not being novice cruisers, we didn't know the pitfalls of what we attended and all the gotcha techniques.  Hopefully next time we will be more prepared and aware of all the money pits and avoid those events.   

Cabin / Stateroom
We were very happy with the cabin and the cabin attendant was awesome. Again, we had no idea if we were to leave tips each day.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
The Coca Cay (private island) snorkeling event was a bust and waste of money. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. The drinks cost money even though we had the unlimited pass for drinks and there was NO WATER.
Onboard Activities

Food and Dining


Be aware of the money pit events like the art free giveaways or the learn the casino games (stay out of the casinos because its a losing event)!. We had fun at the shows and the excursions not part of Royal cruise line. We booked one with American Airlines and it was the best one!
