Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We were impressed with our stateroom having so much storage space for being a small room. We had 5 pieces of luggage plus 2 carry on bags. There was plenty of room to hang all of our clothes in the closet and drawers and cubby holes galore to put things. Luggage could be stored under the bed. Our Stateroom Attendant, Juliet, saw to all of our needs and was very friendly.
The variety and quality of the food served in the dining room and buffet was wonderful. We were able to try things that we had never tried before. The food was delicious.
There was a great variety of entertainment that we thoroughly enjoyed. There was a Magic Show, Comedy Shows, Musical Shows, Bingo, the Casino and much more.
All of the staff members that we encountered were friendly, helpful and saw to our every need.
One of our favorite things was meeting some wonderful new friends that we plan to stay in touch with.
The only thing that would have made this trip absolutely perfect would have been if the weather had cooperated. What we had hoped would be warm tropical weather turned out to be windy and cold. Due to the weather conditions we were unable to stop at Coco Cay but that did not ruin our vacation at all. There was enough entertainment on the ship to keep us busy. We will definitely make plans to go on another cruise with Royal Carribean some time in the future so that we can enjoy all of the things that we missed on this cruise.
We would highly recommend that anyone that has never cruised before to go on one.

Pros: Wonderful & plentiful food and variety of entertainment

Cons: Weather didn't cooperate!
