Review summary

Everything was perfect except for the weather, very windy and cold in the Bahamas and on return trip. However, this is not the fault of the cruise line as you cannot control the weather. The ship was beautiful, food was spot on, would definitely recommend to anyone and am planning another cruise with RC in 2021.

Everything went above our expectations..small disappointment with water park at Coco Cay but all was handled with professionalism.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The main dining room was fantastic, and the waiters were falling over themselves to please every customer at every table and did it with magnificence!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We loved everything esp. all the hot tubs because they are usually overcrowded but not on this ship, there were many to go around.

We did not attend many of the shows so cannot properly rate them.

Children's Programs

The children stayed with me the entire time, therefore not really able to rate this.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I cannot say enough about the service and professionalism of the staff. I witnessed a customer who had a bit too much to drink yelling at one of the employees over a drink that he himself spilled and they handled everything very calmly and professionally.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is beautiful, cannot for the life of me figure out how in the workd you can keep it so clean with so many customrs milling about every floor, Also, whenever we left our rooms, even if it were 4 times a day, when we returned, our beds were re-made and everything was freshened you have cameras inside the cabins? j/k

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Spotless. loved the shower. Been on other sailings with interior rooms and it was so cramped with just two people. We had four on this trip and it was surprisingly comfortable, didn't feel crowded at all.

Ship tip

Do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed!

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

Loved the beautiful beach, the waterpark was nothing that we could not do at home here in Florida...the pools would have been more attractive to my children had they been heated, the water was extremely cold.

Nassau, Bahamas

Didn't like being bombarded as soon as we got off the ship to have hair braided, tours, taxis, etc. It was also too windy to enjoy the island. Note: we do understand that this is no fault of Royal Carribean's
