Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining room food was very good. Windjammer had a lot of great options for lunch and dinner. Drinks were awful. Iced tea and lemonade tasted off twice in a row so we didn’t drink them again.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
We had a grand suite and I was disappointed in its condition. There were dents in the walls, worn mirrors (showing black were reflection once was) old and worn furniture, barely any outlets and not enough space for 5 to get ready daily. There isn’t even a mirror in the family room where an outlet and vanity is. The ship is old and I know it was refurbished but it’s showing it’s strain. The activities were great and there were lots of fun things for the teens but I would not take this ship again. The staff were mostly very friendly and worked hard. Room service food has gone downhill greatly. You can tell they cut costs there big time. I love Royal Caribbean but will stick with the newer ships.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

Rain and storms closed the island down at 12:00. Huge bummer but it looks beautiful and would otherwise be a perfect stop. They can’t help the weather. Staff on island very friendly and welcoming. Lots to do with a gorgeous pool, awesome beach and plentiful activities. The bathrooms on the island were also top notch. Wish we could have enjoyed the island.
