i would recommend slightly smaller ship unless you are traveling with kids with very short attention spans.  service and things you come to expect on royal caribbean cruise ship were lacking - for example: only got 3 towel animals (i know, kinda picky, but we enjoy the surprise of what it will be tonight); my time dining on ship this large is challenging as well - stick with early/late option; be advised- if you are crown & anchor members, this ship did not have a repeaters party, very disappointing as well.  overall, we did have a great trip; most of the staff were very nice and made some new friends!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
it was fine because it was on deck 11 - would be unhappy with boardwalk balcony if on lower deck

Ship Tip

better purchase the beverage pkg - they no longer offer 'drink of the day'
