A great cruise

Sail Date: May 07, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Ship and crew were great. We had an interior stateroom, and it was not bad at all. It was perfect for the time spent in it. The stateroom attendant (Nadi), was great and took care of the room better than we would have on our own. While this is an older ship, I felt like they did a good job of making it look great. The only downside was the seating. Chairs and couches were stiff and uncomfortable. The food was okay, had to season on my own for taste, which I understand because they are preparing for so many people. When eating at your regular dining, I would suggest ordering more than one entree because one will not fill you up. The buffet was good and had plenty of variety, especially at breakfast. This was our first cruise, and overall it was excellent. I will cruise with Royal Caribbean again.

Pros: Entertainment, Food was okay, Staff was superb.

Cons: Chairs in the seating areas were not comfortable at all
