there were many clever uses of teck to be found all around the ship. The true star of this ship however were the shows,  these were probably the best at sea. dynamic dinning does one thing very well, that is eliminating that madding elevator rush at dinner hours.  On the other hand some venues were lacking    the menus do not change so even if you prefer one venue there would be little variety.  My choices for dinning are Jamie's Italian[ very good], Chic and the grande.  Making reservations far in advance is wise if you prefer early seating.  Shows also require reservations and are even more important than dinning reservations.  Without a show reservation you must wait until reserved quests are seated and the seating options are very limited. There are a lot more added cost outlets and some old ones have changed.  Johnny rockets  which one explorer was a 5.00 dollar charge is now a la carte.  I do not smoke, however my wife does,  and areas for smoking were very limited.  There was not a spot to lay in the sun and be able to smoke.

Ship Quality
for such a large ship it was never really crowded. We have felt much more crowded on smaller ships.
Food and Dining
The ship was very new and so was much of the staff. I did have a few not so good meals but most were what one would expect on Royal Caribbean.
Service and Staff
Janice or room steward was very good. Onur in chic was an excellent waiter. One word of caution is you bring a very old vintage wine you must take it to the wine bar to be opened and decanted it can not be left to the wait staff.
Mama Mia was truly worthy of Broadway. Starwaters was unique and well done.
Cabin / Stateroom
big television nice bathroom typical balcony. The most storage space in a balcony.
San Juan, Puerto Rico missed due to weather delay
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
great beaches and really a nice little town.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
my wife loves to play with the baby dressed up monkeys. And the people have always been warm.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
The best bargains are found here. The best restaurants are in grad case, and the zoo is delightful.


When arriving at dock in Bayonne find one of the greeters with I pads and stick to your arrival time. Check in can be a breeze if done correctly.
