Review summary

Cruise was great! This survey is not mobile friendly and super frustrating.

So easy due to Royal Caribbean’s organization and efficiency. ZERO wait time to board.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Only did the buffet but the selections were great! Some of the desserts were a bit lacking, but overall it made coming home and having to cook for my family again hard.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The Flow Rider was AWESOME!!! Longer flow ride times would be awesome because it takes so long for people to cycle through sometimes you’re lucky if you get to go more than once. The Escape Room was challenging. Laser tag was a BLAST! The rock climbing wall was fun.

Pretty good.

Children's Programs

My 15 yr old decided not to take advantage of the teen club.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
SUPER friendly staff!!! They made a great effort to tend to all needs (within reason) in order to make for a wonderful cruise experience.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is so large that initially its confusing, but not long before you get situated and can make your way around the ship. Plus the touchscreen maps and helpful staff located throughout the ship help.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Clean and comfortable! I like how there was the option to put the double beds together to make a single bed.

Ship tip

Download the Royal Caribbean app as it’s VERY informative! But be careful because one time it noted gangway up at 5:30, but the ship set sail at 4:56! Luckily the sign posted before people exited the ship noted that guests had to be back onboard by 4.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

I flew into Miami only for the ship.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

The food was great! Swimming with the pigs was great! The aqua park was fun. More than enough lounge chairs. My only frustration was that the lifeguard did not let me use my diving approved monofin in the pool. He could not provide a reason other than he couldn’t let me use it. I just ended up swimming in the ocean with it.

Nassau, Bahamas

Great port visit. All shops are right outside the gate, just a short walk away! Booking our excursion through Priceline would have been more helpful had there been a map to the location; an exact meet up time listed; and obvious excursion staff so you knew you were in the right place. The “swim with the dolphins” experience was great! It was very well organized.

It was super fast and efficient. We were off the ship and on our Royal Caribbean bus for the airport in no time!
