I have been on over 20 cruises. This was my 5th cruise with Royal Caribbean. Really enjoyed the staff, my cabin stewart and Sandra at the cabanas. Would never go to CocoCay or Labadee again without getting a cabana.

Windjammer Marketplace

Was not as big as Carnival's buffet area. There are not as many seats. We were finally able to sit together after we waited a while.

Main Dining Room

I had been assured twice that Mariner could accommodate a party of 11,however when we checked in this was not set up. Mickey in the main dining room made a table of 11 for us. We enjoyed evening dinner very much.

Cafe Promenade

Enjoyed Bayside Marketplace and Lincoln Road Mall. Yuca was great restaurant in South Beach. Used Uber twice without incident.

Cococay (Cruise Line's Private Island)

5 out of 5
Rented two deluxe ocean view cabanas for 11 people. It was perfect! Did not realize we got our own deluxe lunch. We had shrimp kebabs,steak and wonderful salads and vegetables. Would do this again.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
I have been to Nassau about 10 times but never did an excursion. We did the Sea and See excursion. It was so much fun! Did not realize it included underwater viewing. We all enjoyed it,including 3 children.
