We had not cruised with Royal Caribbean sine 2005 and had wonderful memories of those previous cruises. The shows were a rehash of the old shows and while done well this was a little disappointing. Coco Cay has changed a lot and is more commercial, but has many more things to do. Nassau was a memorable experience as we met a local gentleman (Kevin), who was so proud and knowledgeable about the Island. He told us where we should go and then decided that he would walk with us to show the way. His suggestion were excellent. The people at our diner table were also enjoyable and had a wonderful sense of humor. Our cabin steward was also a delight to talk to. I think the most memorable aspect of travel is the people you meet and we made several new friends on this trip.

Pros: The staff was great as was most of the entertainment.

Cons: Ship is showing it's age
