My 21 year old daughter and I had a wonderful cruise.  Top praises goes to the staff!  They couldn't have been more helpful, and all seemed very happy, from our room being cleaned impeccably every day, to the restaurant/waitstaff/barstaff, and everyone around the ship, always had a large smile and personable greeting.  Shows were absolutely top rate, and I liked that they would add smaller shows (singers from Cats giving an impromptu Broadway song show).  Royal Caribbean did an awesome job and will definitely cruise with them again.  However, I'll pick a week when all children are in school!  The week before there were 5900 passengers, ours was 6300 and filled with children!  They were everywhere, running around yelling and screaming!Some of the passengers were very rude, not even acknowledging that you even said hello.  The configuration of the Windjammer Buffet seemed inefficient, people pushing and shoving running around the circular stations.  The Solarium is supposed to be a quiet adult section, however there were groups of 20-somethings (considered adults?) who seemed to be having a loud drinking party in the pool and spa; this is one thing I think should be enforced, since it is supposed to be sort of a "retreat" not a frat party!  Overall, we had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

I booked a guarantee interior room and was given a large interior above Boleros - the Latin dance club. We were very worried about noise, but since the ship was full, we couldn't change. There was absolutely no noise whatsoever! It was very quiet, wouldn't even know you were on a ship with 6300 people! The only noise was the last night, the people next to us seemed to be having a party pretty late. Room was good size, bed and pillows were comfortable, everything was clean and kept perfectly.

Tip

Skip the Windjammer buffet for breakfast - go the main dining room, either sit and order from the menu, if you have time, or just go through their buffet. Royal refreshment is worth the money, in addition to specialty coffee and etc., we would order virgin drinks with alcohol on the side.
