Review Summary

For my first, and my honeymoon, I was heavily disappointed. I felt incredibly disappointed in the entire experience. I was told that because it was my Honeymoon, the ship would be aware and we would receive special surprises in our room. I waited until day 3 and was told by Guest Relations there was no such notification , but Royal Caribbean sent a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to our room a couple hours later and an apology. The ship advertised in the pictures on the website was so much more luxurious, newer and many amentities. I found out we were on one of the oldest , few amentities, and a 2 out of 10 on the food.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Main dining staff was amazing and the food was much improved in comparison to the buffets. The buffets served us nasty frozen pizzas and nothing extremely appealing. Everyday we were served the same menu- burgers and hotdogs. Terrible!

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
I'm 20 weeks pregnant and I was so looking forward to relaxing in the pool, but wasnt able to because the pool was extremely small in comparison to the mass amount of people. I did enjoy my couples massage but hated that immediately after the massage a high pressure sales pitch was pushed on me for 10 mins - so much for relaxation! I did enjoy the art Auction I attended but was slightly disappointed that I won, "free art," but I had to pay for the shipping of $35...not really free to me. Bingo was a scam. They didn't tell you it was one winner of $300 and that was it. Our game lasted only 5 mins. They has to cancel the theater show the first two days and once you got to enjoy it, although talented , you were kinda already over it. There were apparently parties going on, but unfortunately you didn't know unless you physically stayed at the pool bar. Im pregnant and can't drink, so I missed some fun.

Entertainment

As I said earlier, the show was canceled the first two days and once you got to see it on the third you were already over it.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
The waiters, Oren and Dmytro in the main dining were exceptional. My husband was impressed with a bartender on the 14th floor. Room steward was nice but again, the lack of honeymoon notification between <img class='agent-replacement' src='/images/hideagent.png'> and the Royal Caribbean, caused a lack of Lister in treatment.

Ship Quality

It was clean but 25 years old.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
I almost cried when I walked in! It was a closet with a small square for a window! I paid an upcharge to be in an Oceanview Stateroom. I thought, judging by the pictures advertised that the room would be much larger, luxurious and better treatment.

Ship Tip

Don't set your expectations too high, unless you're a college kid on a budget who will drink the cruise away. Be prepared to pay an extra $200 just to drink welldrinks those 3 days. Invest your money in the excursions but learn to dodge the crowd of peddlers who will invade your space. I got off of the sailboat of my excursion, and a woman jumped on me tried pulling my hair out of my ponytail, trying to braid my hair and I kept trying to explain to her I was pregnant and prone to headaches, she persisted and I felt so uncomfortable, I pulled out a $20 to get her away from me. We had to walk a half mile while being followed by peddlers. I was so uncomfortable and upset by the time I got back to the ship.

Horrible! The excursions park you a half mile away from the ship and forces you to deal with the peddlers.

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)

4 out of 5
Cococay made up for the horrible experience at Nassau. I wish we could have been there for two days.
