Review Summary

We felt it was too many days on the boat and not enough time in bermuda- we had to be back at the boat by 230 the third day which really put a damper on the whole day. the boat was clean, the dining staff very accommodating  but the pool area was much too small and there was a DJ that catered to the younger crowd- by 2 o'clock in the afternoon the pool area was a scene out of spring break for college students in Fla. I truly feel there should be an Adult pool area for us older people that enjoy quiet. My cabin attendant had to be reminded to bring us tea bags and creamer quite often and also when we checked in he overlooked the last occupant leaving her underwear in the closet- this is just sloppy. When we cruised Royal CArribeian years ago our cabin attendant left us towel animals every day on the bed and the cabin was always clean and well appointed. In this respect Royal Caribbean was far superior to this boat. there was also a miscommunication when it came to making reservations for the specialty restaurants. I was told when I called to make a reservation that the only opening was 830 and within 10 seconds it changed to 930 - when we went down we were seated by 830 and there were plenty of empty tables. Also there was not any place to buy a paperback book and the on board library which had books to check out was only open 1 hour a day? So all in all although it was a fairly clean ship and the food and entertainment was good we would not recommended it to others.

Ship was clean but we had to walk through the pool area to get to the buffet? The floor was always wet and it was inconvenient. and felt unsafe. We felt the layout of the ship was not easy- it was too scattered and hard to navigate.

our attendant had to be reminded to bring us tea bags and creamer- he left underwear from the previous cabin occupants in the closet

Ship Tip

Make sure you leave more than a towel on the beach chairs the other passengers did not respect towels as a sign that the chair was reserved Also do not expect quiet and relaxing at the pool area it was like spring break in FLA for college students the DJ played rap all afternoon so bring ear plugs
