Royal Caribbean the best???

Sail Date: September 24, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

After 7 cruises, we found this one to be lacking what we have received on other cruises.

Pros: dining team and food

Cons: the room

George Town, Grand Cayman
This was our 7th trip to Grand Cayman and never knew there was a ship wreck just off the shore at the cruise docks. Bring your own snorkel equipment and just jump in at Eden rock. The snorkel is the best!!
Don't Miss: Snorkel !!!!!! Not to be missed on any tour or on your own.
Cozumel, Mexico
Lots of changes to Cozumel since hurricane Wilma, but very much for the better. Every one needs to understand the beaches in CZ are not great, limestone rock in most places, some sand. Skip Playa Mia beach, everyone is there, watch for scams, they will try to sell you pawnshop jewelry/watches. Take the ferry to Playa del Carmen and enjoy the beaches there, they are awesome. Check excursions offered in the area by other providers, not just the ship. Some are so much better than these offered and can be done with enough time to shop and return to the ship.
Don't Miss: Fury catamarans and Playa del Carmen with always be my favorite.

Key West, Florida
Not what I expected. There are a lot of "street people" (aka homeless). I was fascinated by the architecture in the area and loved the boardwalk and street entertainment. You have to try the conch fritters, the absolute best.
Don't Miss: site seeing and conch fritters!
