Seven Days of fun on RC

Room Type: Inside

Very enjoyable cruise for number six on RC. Had Promenade stateroom for second time and the extra size and window bench overlooking the activities was great. Food was superb as usual but we found the Chops restraunt was a good place to be conservative on ordering. Appetizers were huge,a bowl of Forest Mushroom soup must have been 18 ounces. We cancelled the 10 ounce fillets and substituted 7 ounce. The sides were easily enough fro two servings. They allowed us to take the enormous slice of Red Velvet cake to our room! We hurried this because we had our first meeting of Platinum and up guests. Shazam!! Hot and cold horderves, canapes and petit fours in abundance. Shall consider this carefully next cruise. Fine and varied entertainment and the entire crew was enjoyable. Found a liquor buy in Grand Cayman. Just across the street from the wharf is a liquor and Rum Cake shop. The liquor was a little less than the one on the wharf and they gave me a large Rum Cake with purchase of 4 bottles of my favorite rum. Looking to another voyage in April so see you out there

Galveston, Texas
we were VERY late arriving to board. 3PM walk through check in. Avoid the crush..been 2 P usually and that is better than the 12 noon stampede
Cozumel, Mexico
Taxis are cheaper across from the terminal
George Town, Grand Cayman
Building a wharf so tendering unnecessary in the future
Falmouth, Jamaica
I would not advise soloing into Falmouth.Stay with cruise tours for safety


Morning room service may be a little slow. We usually order coffee,milk ,juices and a bit of fruit before we go to the formal dining room for breakfast. There you will find your eggs Benedict!
