Review summary

You take for granted the 9 days until you are heading back and realize that you have 2 more days to unwind for your trip home.  

All the islands were exceptional each one offering great snorkeling, fun tours, and unbelievable beaches.   Traveling in March was a bit rough since we lost 2 days leaving and 1 day coming back due to the wind and chill in the air.  definitely a must return and look forward to see if Royal sends one of their bigger ships.  

Snorkeling in Bonaire was unbelieveable with the variety and beautiful colors of the fishes large and small.   The Kukukunuk Tour in Aruba was the most fun we have had since high school.  Hanging out of a multicolored painted bus with no windows and shaking the maraccas and screaming our lungs off at all the passer-by's.

First time in all our cruises that we did not catch any shows. We caught the magician but fell asleep during the performance. It might have been since the show started at 10:30 right after the late dinner. THe Quest, Married Game, and Battle of the sexes are always fun.

One of the largest rooms and largest balconies we have had. Very spacious and the Room attendant ROuston Rodrigues was top notch.

I love Miami and if it wasn't that we already took extra time with the 9 days, I would have stayed a few days in Miami.
