Great cruise on a great ship!!!

This was our second cruise, but the first on Royal Caribbean. We loved everything about the cruise--a great stateroom attendant-Harold , great waiter-Ayesha and asst waiter-Curtis. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. The activities on the ship were varied and gave us plenty to do--shuffleboard, mini-golf, hot tub, pool, casino. You name it, we did something different every day. Our cruise director, Carly, made sure there was a lot of fun and laughs for everyone. She was great!!
We also enjoyed our shore excursion in Honduras. Unfortunately our shore excursion was cancelled in Cozomel due to weather, but we managed to get our own tour with a local taxi driver. All in all, a great vacation. We are looking forward to our next cruise already.

Beautiful ship

Plenty to choose from at each port and plenty of shopping
Galveston, Texas
Great checking in, really slow getting a porter and going thru customs. Our only bad experience.

We loved this island. We booked our excursions through We took the Special Island tour and our tour guides-Penny and Orlin- were great.
Belize City, Belize
Our plans fell thru for the day, so we hired a taxi driver and he took us to the Mayan Ruins at Altun Ha and then lunch at a local restaurant. Very good trip
Cozumel, Mexico
The shore excursion was cancelled due to weather, but we hired a taxi and got a great tour of the island. Made several stops along the way. We would definitely go back.


The Windjammer Cafe was great for breakfast. Such a large selection of food.
