Review SummaryOur room was on the 5th level in the front part of the ship. When we arrived for the check in process, we asked to move to the center of the ship to avoid too much motion which would cause sea sickness. We spoke to 4 different people and none of them even bothered to look for an alternative room. The food was mediocre at best. The pepper on the ship was just plain weird tasting. If you're a chocolate lover like me, you will be disappointed. None of the meals ended with a nice chocolate dessert. You won't find any bargains in the ships stores and you will have to pay for ice cream (unlike other cruise lines we've been on where you can serve yourself soft serve ice cream at all hours). The room itself was much smaller than past cruises we've been on. They were never able to pull into their own island (CoCo Cay) despite two attempts. The weather was normal so I'm not sure why they could not get one of their boats into their own island. Had some fun at the Straw Market at Nassau (great deals on knock off designer purses and other great stuff). We'll pass on another Royal Carribbean cruise, there's nothing royal about it.
