Great Cruise

Sail Date: August 13, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The cruise was amazing (much better than what we expected.) Staff was friendly and attentive. Amazingly the shopping center inside the ship was moderatly priced. The shows were great! We had a blast every night at the featured show. Royal Caribbean does a great job in regards to entertainment on board. Even though the acholoic drinks were not included in the cruise price they were moderatly priced. The selection of food was incredible. The always had fresh bread/pastries and fruits. There was so much to do on board we did not get to participate in a lot of the activities.

The only thing I was not happy with was that I was promised a bottle of Champagne and a "pecial dinner" because it was our honeymoon). It never happened. The Guest Services reprenative on board the ship told me they were not informed of any such thing. Becareful what these sales represenatives tell you when you are bookings the cruise. They might promise things just to make the sale.

Over all I would recommend this cruise.

Pros: Food and Shows were excellent

Cons: Soft drinks and acholoic beverages were not included.

George Town, Grand Cayman
Snorkeling was great. The beach was amazing.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
There was nothing special about this island. The people at the market were a little pushy. The water was great.
