Review summary

We have enjoyed many cruises. Royal Caribbean at the top. This was a very large ship, largest we have crushed on. Probably go with a smaller vessel in the future. Food was great, not exceptional. Alcohol drinks too expensive, plus 18% gratuity every drink questionable.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Requested early seating, didn’t receive, had to go with open, called to schedule early, every time earliest wa 8 pm. Dining staff did as good as possible, but we confused at times where to seat us. Really don’t understand concept of specialty restaurants, didn’t use, if we paying for a luxurious cruise as we have for over 40 years, you’re kinda telling me the food you’ll be eating in the main dining room is good, pay more and it will be a lot better. Buffets okay, nothing great.

Ship tip

Really book the dinner time you want to eat. If you don’t like the table guests, request another table. We like dining at the same time, the waiter, bus boy know your dining needs, and want to accommodate you.

Scenic port. Did bus tour. Dropped off at shops that all had same items, would like to be left to shop more in town, do restaurants.
