Review summary

It was an adventure of a lifetime!! It is a great cruise for both adults and kids. And CocoCay is really beautiful!!

The embarkation was a lot quicker than we thought it would be. It was literally under 30 minutes to arrive at the dock and board the boat.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All the food was great, except for one dinner in the dining hall, but we went back the next day and they redeemed themselves by serving an excellent last night dinner. The mashed potatoes in Wingjammer were heavenly. I do wish there was a better desserts in the buffet, because none were really good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We did bingo, I did the escape room, we watched the belly flop contest, and we did some light shopping. All were great. I loved the escape room. It was challenging and it was a unique bond experience with other guest on the ship who you were teamed up. I did an evening one and we were at that point the only team on that day that complete the room. We finished with 8 minutes and 55 seconds left. It was great.

We saw part of one of the shows. We just happened to walk in a watch the end. We saw the juggler's part and the ending. The parts we saw were really good. We enjoyed it.

Children's Programs

We had no kids with us.

Service and Staff

Staff were amazing. They always asked if we need anything. They were really helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was beautiful. There was a few areas that were hard to find, because you had to walk to the other side on one floor then take the elevator to another one. Other than that, there were no problems with boat. It was always clean and well-maintained. Everything worked and wasn't broken.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The room was really comfortable and spacious. Every time we returned it was clean and straighten up. Our housekeeper, Xavier, was amazing!! He was very helpful and whenever we needed anything he went and found it for us.

Ship tip

Don't buy anything until the last day, b/c everything is over priced until the last day sales.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

Lovebugs were everywhere, but that's not RCCL fault. That's just nature. Never knew of lovebugs until now. Apparently, May and September are mating season for those nasty bugs.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
It was amazing!! We went on the Funky Jeep tour. We booked it through Expedia, b/c the cruise charged too much to book through them. It was authentic and you could tell the tour guide loved his home country a lot. Even though it started to rain, or what they call Liquid Sunshine, we still enjoyed ourselves.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
This was really fun!! Everyone who worked there was really helpful. Everyone in my group, except me (I'm afraid of heights) went in the Up, Up, and Away Balloon and loved it! They said it was beautiful up in the sky and that you could see the whole island. The food was really good, too. And the peacock and rooster were fun to see.

Our disembarkment was surprisingly fast and easy. We did have one guest hold up the line, but that was no one's fault, but her own.
